I have the opportunity to get a pair of Sonos Ones at wholesale, to add to my current HT Sonos setup: a Playbase. My setup is as follows:
Samsung UN40D6000 => Playbase via optical/TOSLink
TV => Apple TV 4 via HDMI
TV => Blu-Ray Player via HDMI
TV => Mac Mini/Kodi via HDMI
TV => STB via HDMI
The issue I'm concerned about is audio passthrough. Namely, will the Sonos play DD 5.1/DTS audio from any of the sources I have connected to the TV? As I understand it, many Samsung TVs will not pass DD 5.1 through optical, or even HDMI. They support PCM, but that mixes down to stereo. My TV is from 2012 and I can't find any definitive info whether I will be able to pass through 5.1 DD or not.
Is there an easy way to test whether my TV will pass 5.1 DD/DTS to Sonos? TIA
