I have a Sharp tv and a Sony sound system. I have just switched from cable to a Fire Stick and can’t get the surround sound to work.

Ive got a sharp tv & it won't pass surround sound from external sources via hdmi or by optical .
It does stereo pcm only.

If your sony surround aound system doesnt have hdmi inputs you are out of luck.

I had to buy a new hdmi arc switching home theatre reciever when I changed my tv from LG to the sharp (the LG had no/issue passing full dolby digital out via optical)

That’s what I need to know. I have a HDMI cable and my manual says to connect audio cables. I have done both.
