Unhappy Need help getting 7.1 (or atleast 5.1) surround with PS4.

Ok so I've been googling for a while but everything I can find on the issue is full of conflicting comments and suggestions.

My set up is as follows:

PS4 HDMI > Samsung 55UB850T TV optical > Samsung HT-J7750WM 7.1 HTS.


My PS4 settings are HDMI(ARC) with Bitstream(Dolby) audio format.

My TV is using sound out: External Speaker (optical/HDMI ARC).

My HTS is using ARC: Auto.


No matter what I change I'm still only getting stereo audio from my front left/right speakers. Any ideas to get it into 7.1?

I'm a bit confused by the way you explained your setup below but the optimum method for making this work would be to have your PS4 connected to your HTS via HDMI then your HTS HDMI out connected to your TV's HDMI In. If that is the way you have your PS4 hooked up then you should be getting no less than 5.1 sound for most content/games. If you are only getting stereo output (L/R) then that would lead me to believe that it is something in the settings of the HTS you are using.


I would definitely not recommend having the PS4 hooked up directly to the TV via HDMI and then the Optical/ARC carrying the sound back down to your HTS as this could definitely be your issue if that is the way it's currently hooked up.

Nevermind, so far it's only broken for me in Styx: Master of Shadows (the first game, don't now about the new one). It was functioning before (and there hasn't been any game patches).
