Samsung HW-E450, TV, and Xbox settings?
I've already posted this under the soundbar forum, but figured I'd try here instead.
I have just about burned myself out searching google, these forums, reddit, etc for a concrete answer to my setup. I recently got a samsung HW-E450 2.1 soundbar. Along with this soundbar I have a Samsung UN55F6300 and an Xbox one. I currently have all of this connected to the soundbar as follows:
Xbox one -> TV via HDMI
TV -> Soundbar via Optical cable.
The only reason I do not have the xbox connected directly to the soundbar is because I use the Samsung PleX app to watch movies. My question is what settings due I use between the xbox, TV, and soundbar. Below I have listed all of the 'available' options for each piece of equipment. I am struggling trying to understand and figure out what goes with what.
-Bitstream -> DD or DTS
TV (external speaker)
-DTS Neo 2:5
-3D surround (off, low, high)
-Surround effects (cinema, movie, game, etc....)
Being it's a 2.1 soundbar, I have ignored 5.1 and 7.1 settings on the Xbox one. Bitstream appears to show a small amount of lag when paired with PCM or DTS Neo 2:5.
So with these settings, what would be my best setup? Stereo uncompressed with DTS Neo 2:5 and 3D surround high? Bitstream DTS, DTS Neo 2:5, no 3D surround? What unit does the surround/3D processing?
