Good stuff, so its actually:
Smart TV applications and OTA content delivered from antenna plugged directly into TV:
* Optical out from TV: 2 channel PCM, 5.1 DD and 5.1 DTS
* HDMI out from TV (arc): 2 channel PCM, 5.1 DD, 5.1 DTS, DTS-HD, DTS-MA
Other devices attached to TV (bluray player, ps3, htpc, etc) via hdmi:
* Optical out from TV: 2 channel PCM, DD, DTS
* HDMI ARC: 2 channel PCM, DD (?), DTS (?)
I was only able to get 2channel from HDMI -> HDMI ARC, hadn't personally tested optical.
