I just purchased 2 Play 1's, a Sub and a PlayBase. I have connected and tuned the system successfully. Unfortunately, I am not getting Dolby 5.1 surround sound. I believe the problem might be that my TV does not pass through Dolby 5.1. I connected my PlayBase to my TV through my TV's optical audio out port (an adapter was required), but sound comes through in "Stereo" mode. I verified this on my Sonos App by looking at "Settings" and then "About My Sonos" which shows an "Audio In" note regarding my PlayBase that indicates "Stereo" not "Dolby Digital 5.1". Also, it is obvious from listening to the system that I am not receiving Dolby 5.1. My TV is a Panasonic model TCP60GT30. In my TV's user manual, it states as follows:
"You can enjoy your Home theater by connecting a Dolby Digital (5.1 channel) decoder and "Multi Channel" amplifier to the
DIGITAL AUDIO OUT terminals."
Does this mean I need a new TV, or another piece of equipment in order to get optimal sound out of my Sonos system? Any advice would be appreciated!
