I'd just buy the 4221 but the 4251 is actually quite a bit cheaper right now through the end of the day. If it works just as well as the 4221 when the satellites aren't hooked up that would save a few bucks.
You don't need the rear speakers. My current set up in the living room doesn't really work with surround sound so we just took the rear speakers down. Works just fine without them.

Yep, it's all set to bitstream whenever possible. No conversion is happening. I linked some test files above if you want to see what I'm talking about... it does a decent approximation sometimes, but it never fully resolves distinct channels, and test audio is the best way to replicate that.

I have my Laptop, PS3, PS4 connected to this switch and that switch outputs to this that finally is connected to my LG 60LA62000 and the toslink from ViewHD to the S4251W.

PS3 and PS4 shows up DTS when gaming and I'm having a hard time finding 5.1 DD or DTS Blu-ray movies (tried Saving Private Ryan Jurassic Park, they all had DTS-HD)

But the one giving the most trouble is my Laptop, it will only see stereo and it sees only the LG TV that way in stereo, under the LG TV properties it shows for the Encoded Formats DTS Audio and Dolby Digital. Can anyone point or educate me in the right direction? Thank you!
