Well, if your TV is a Samsung, then the option of going from your source
to your TV via HDMI and then optical from the TV to the receiver is a no
go. Samsung cripple the connection from the TV to the receiver.
My step-son's LG TV does not (that is, source->hdmi->tv->spdif->reciever
and every source is able to get it's 5.1 sound to the receiver). Going
to try to return my Samsung TV and get an LG. Thanx but no thanx
