The industry has some rules (see HDCP) and since the TV has speakers to make sound, any pass through is stereo with an exception for over the air (Antenna input) content.

You can see why you can't solve this by using the TV's audio output now.

This is not that it isn't possible but the industry in its over zealous protection of HD content made this rule and you are only in need of knowing about it so you stop trying to get something working that will not.
