+1 I hope DTS is supported at some point, but I understand there are no announced plans to do so.

I have a house full of Sonos that we love, so I was willing to fabricate a solution. To overcome the no-DTS/TOS limitation and get 5.1 to the Playbar, I'm planning the Playbar, Sub and 2 Play1's set up as surround and use a Monoprice HDMI/TOS switch (Cable/Xbox/Chromecast/3DBlueRay) and ARC from the TV to get 5.1 to the Playbar.

75" Samsung gets installed on Saturday - Fingers crossed my plan works.

Yea I'm going to do it too, what your going to do should work plenty of people are using switches to get 5.1 to the playbar so we know it works. I'm gonna try without the switch first since my TV list that it will pass 5.1 dd through the optical. It's a Sony they seem to be one of the few who do that. Good luck!
