I want to connect TV to get video output of Laptop, and to get Home Theater Audio output of Laptop.
e.g I want to play movies/music from Laptop but audio should come from Home Theater and video from TV.

I have
TV : Samsung UA32EH4003R [only one HDMI, no Optical Audio Input]
Laptop : HP 15-af103ax [only one HDMI, no Optical Audio Input]
Audio System : Phillips HTD5510/94 5.1 Home Theater [one HDMI output - ARC and one Optical Audio Out]

Please help me to connect these devices.

Thank you kanewolf for your quick reply.

If I buy this device I would be connecting as :

One HDMI cable from Laptop (OUT) to new Device (INPUT).
Audio Optical cable from new Device (OUT) to Phillips Home Theatre (INPUT).
Another HDMI cable will go from new Device (OUT) to TV (INPUT).

Am I correct ? Please correct me if I am wrong.

Also do I need to buy HDMI 1.4 (ARC) or 2 version Cables ?

By connecting this will I get the 5.1 output ?

Thanks

That would be the correct connectivity. Assuming your laptop outputs 5.1 you should get it on your Phillips.
