Could do with your help making sense of some stuff if you're able to advise?
Got a Playbar plugged into a Samsung TV, watching Blurays on a PS4.
Got two Play:1s behind the sofa for a surround sound system.
Most of the time, however, I'm seeing Stereo as the input type when checking the info in settings on the sonos app.
I have the PS4 set to HDMI priority, with bit stream (dolby) set as the audio format, as with another article on here.
I've tried optical straight from the PS4 to the sound bar, but it still comes up as stereo.
I've tried the HDMI into the TV and the optical from TV to soundbar and it still says stereo.
The TV only allows me to select PCM as the audio format out.
Im still trying to get my head around the various audio formats, but is it possible to get 5.1 through PCM?
If it is possible, does it come to as 5.1 in the sonos app, or will all PCM come up as stereo?
I'm looking into possibly getting a splitter to bypass the TV for audio, if that'll help me get 5.1 from all my DTS Blurays.
Any tips? (and yes I know it's not fully 5.1 til I get a sub, but I'm being a good neighbour in an apartment block and I'm keeping the bass at reasonable levels
Thanks on advance for any help you can give!
