You simply cannot get true 5.1 sound out of this with its extremely limiting optical routing option. Virtually no TV on the market will output 5.1 from external HDMI devices, nor will a receiver. Tested and researched this for a full day now with different receivers. 2100 bucks for 5.1, to be stuck with dummied up 5.1? I cant live with that. Is ANYONE getting TRUE 5.1 out of a playbar using either a TV or a receiver?
