Hi all,

Need some help please. Complete novice here!

I have a Sony BRAVIA KDL-40EX403 which only outputs 2 channel audio via the optical out regardless of whether the original input was in 5.1 or not (Sony confirmed this).

According to http://www.sony.co.uk/product/tv-102-40-lcd/kdl-40ex403 it outputs in 5.1 but can't find out how. Would this be via Hdmi1?

Looking for a new home theatre system and want to know if its worth buying one that has Audio Return Channel enabled.

All HDTVs will output 5.1 from the TV's internal tuner (antenna connection). Most will NOT output 5.1 from source devices connected to the TV. Since this is a European model, best to take the word of Sony support. Whatever audio the TV outputs, it would be the same whether you use optical or ARC.
