I have an optical cable from the TV to my surround system, and as long as the program supports DDSS it comes through properly! I think this is the best setup. This way my Xbox, bluray player, wii, cable box, and any TV apps all go through my sound system, with only one cable hooked up.
If you want to just use the TV speakers for early/late watching, power off the soundbar and turn the TV up.
