5.1 sound from media server via the Smart TV's optical outpu
by LordDundy - 11/3/11 12:28 PM
I have an UE40D6500 Samsung Smart TV. I would like to purchase an amplifier and 5.1 speaker set. I have a media server running on my Synology DS111 NAS. I can watch movies from the NAS on the TV with no problems.
When watching DVD/Blueray movies through the media server on the TV, does the digital optical output of the TV transfer the 5.1 sound to the 5.1 amplifier through an optical cable?
Basically I do not want to buy a separate blueray player (and connect the 5.1 system to that). I want to use the 5.1 through the TV.
Can this be done?
thanks in advance!
