SPDIF Cable Question


Nov 29, 2015
So I've been thinking about getting a PS4 for quite a while now and i have this Samsung Home theater system hooked up in my room (this model has a optical connection). My TV (which is 4-5 years old) has a SPDIF connection). I don't have a cable, but I will if I get this question answered. So the question is:
Will the PS4 sound come out from my 5.1 home theater if I hook the hole bunch like this:
PS4 HDMI cable into my TV, then connect my TV - with a SPDIF male - Optical Cable male - to my 5.1 home theater.

Will this work at all? Also, ask if my instructions weren't clear enough!
