Hi guys, Just wondering if this set up is correct, basicly i want 5.1 surround

My PS4 Is connected to my TV via HDMI
My TV is connected to my sound system via OPTICAL

What settings should my ps4 be set to so i get 5.1 sound? if i look at my surround system its set up stereo X2, but my centre speaker is not working


Any help appreciated.
Thankyou

Optical unless source audio is already compressed dts/dolby will only transmit 2.1 lossless pcm. Optical cable is bandwidth limited.

Most TVs nowadays don't have real-time encoders to compress audio from an Hdmi source to output 5.1/7.1 via optical. As a replacement TVs now have arc (audio return channel) via Hdmi.

Best way to setup Ps4 is bypass TVs audio passthrough by using Hdmi or optical direct to sound system. If your sound system doesn't have Hdmi out for video then optical for audio is fine.

Ps4 Hdmi to Tv for video
Ps4 Optical to sound system
