But here is the question - if the content is streamed through the TV, how do you get 5.1 audio?


In other words, how do these streaming services get output to a receiver from within the TV? How can you ever get 5.1 audio from Vudu if the service is built into the TV and can't run through your receiver??

Almost every HDTV on the market has a digital audio out (coax or optical) that is meant to supply 5.1 to the receiver.
