I have a new Amazon Firestick 4k. It is attached to TV via HDMI. Tv out to playbar via TOSlink optical.
The best audio I can get (according to About my system > Audio in: is STEREO.
Music plays fine - but dialog is muddy and breaks up at any volume high enough to hear over the background music of SFX.
When I go to the firestick audio setting, I have to select "Best Available". If I select any variant of Dolby - NO sound is emitted from playbar. And Settings say SILENCE.
BUT - If I switch my TV antenna to an HD OTA antenna - I get crystal clear 5.1 audio out of the playbar and settings reveal 5.1.
Any help would be appreciated!
