Hi,

It just occurred to me that since my new Samsung ES7500 TV, by design, does not output 5.1 sound on optical out, there is no way I can watch my USB/Allshare and those streaming app videos (youtube etc) in surround sound!! Please correct me if this understanding is wrong but sounds like a big rip off frown.gif

Is there a work around?

Thanks,
YP

Thanks retiredengineer!

I just had a chat with Samsung support and the rep claimed that I should be able to get 5.1 sound over HDMI ARC but not optical out. Can anyone confirm? Not that it helps me since my HT has no ARC.
