Sorry to say, but I think it's standard that ALL TVs output 2.1 over their optical audio out port unless they're outputting from OTA HDTV.
It's not a fault of the PS3 or anything... and, for sure, you're not getting 5.1 out from your TV through your 360's HDMI, it's just not possible.
You'll only get 5.1 from your PS3 or 360 if you use their optical out directly into your AV receiver.
Current HT setup:
Vizio P65-C1 65" LCD HDTV, Polk CS20 Center, 2x Polk Monitor 75T Fronts, 2x Polk TSI300 Backs, PSA S1500 Subwoofer.
