Mine is none of the above.  From the manual:

"When the Home Theater receiver is set to On, you can hear sound output 
from the TV’s Optical jack. When the TV is displaying a DTV(air) signal, 
the TV will send out 5.1 channel sound to the Home theater receiver. 
When the source is a digital component such as a DVD / Blu-ray player / 
Cable Box / Satellite receiver (Set-Top Box) and is connected to the TV 
via HDMI, only 2 channel sound will be heard from the Home Theater 
receiver. If you want to hear 5.1 channel audio, connect the digital 
audio out jack on DVD / Blu-ray player / Cable Box / Satellite receiver 
(Set-Top Box) directly to an Amplifier or Home Theater, not the TV."

This is on a UN46B6000.
