I think it might be a handshake issue. Maybe the W9 is telling my laptop it only accepts stereo pcm? I can definitely see that only a stereo HDMI signal is going in.

Otherwise it might be that the laptop's sound card for some reason only outputs in stereo.

I guess the only way to find out is to plug the laptop via HDMI into the receiver.

Does anyone get 5.1 outputted via toslink from a HDMI signal?

Yes, first you will need to configure your notebook to output DD in its 5.1 form through HDMI. Connect notebook to A/V receiver directly. Be sure that is set for 5.1 and that there is passhtrough. This depends on the drivers and software you use on your notebook. If you share the model of the notebook we can see what are the proper settings for it.

best, d.

Watched The Amazing Spider Man 2 BluRay tonight. It's a Sony release so it's mastered in 4K w/ xvYCC color. Looks spectacular on the W9. It's not the best super hero film but it's ref quality AV.

+1. And although it wasn't shot natively in 3D, the 3D presentation is pretty good, too.

I was browsing You Tube and I came across a video of the Sony KDL-55W950A which was supposedly released only in Asia. I found out this tv is exactly the same as the W9 BUT.......it had gorilla glass and the back was gloss black!!!! What the hell??? The W950A was beautiful in design so my question is is why in the hell didn't Sony do this with the W9? They are identicle TV's spec wise but yet here in the US they left off the gorilla glass and gloss black back panel? WTF? Sony pulled this same crap with their 2014 Blu ray players the 6200 and the 7200 which again have the same specs but design is different. Why do we get short changed here in the U.S? Don't get me wrong...I love the design of my W9 but it would have looked better if it had the same design as the 55W950A. I know this really isn't something to rant over but DAMN!!!! If you guys who own the W9 and want to see the 55W950A check this out. Like I said same tv but yet different design......
