I feel dumb for not being able to figure this out, but I'm looking for some help in getting the most out of my 5.1 setup with my Xbox. I've read as many posts as I can but some are quite old and a lot of the links given by Sonos Support are broken.
When I go into the Xbox audio settings I have the option for 5.1 but it comes back with an error. I have my Playbar connected to my Samsung TV (2yrs old), along with a Sub and two Play 1's. When I go into the Controller it says that the player is outputting in stereo. I've read that some people are using switches to connect their Xbox directly to their TV but it seem like it should be more simple than that given everything is fairly new. Any thoughts on the settings to get surround going?
Thanks in advance!

As Airgetlam mentions, your TV could also be affecting the audio reaching your Playbar. Make sure that it's set to output Dolby Digital as well, if your TV has such options. If it doesn't, try hooking the optical cable directly to the Xbox and see if that works (it most definitely should if your Xbox is set correctly).
