Wii U Surround issues, need help
How is your Wii U connected to your receiver? I mean, what are the audio cables?
Sorry, let me cut to the chase: I believe (and someone can correct me on this if I’m wrong) that the Wii U has no Dolby Surround capabilities, only uncompressed PCM. If you have your system connected with HDMI, it will play uncompressed 5.1 PCM audio. But if you only have it connected with red and white audio jacks, then it will only play back uncompressed two-channel audio, because the Wii U can’t encode the audio into a two-channel surround signal.
