We'd need a model number to know for sure.


Regardless, if you're going to be using your TVs built-in tuner to receive over-the-air HD broadcasts, your TVs digital optical output should output any Dolby Digital 5.1 audio to your receiver.  This is one of the few cases where the digital optical output on the TV actually outputs digital multichannel audio.

also some movies that i try to play from usb through my tv and my tv tells me that audio codec is not supported. will return channel or optical cable pass the audio to receiver and it would be handled there? i think it is dts audio that my tv cant play.

Can't help you at all with the USB issue - I'm not at all familiar with how that would work.  That seems like something that is better achieved via an A/V receiver with a USB port, as receivers are generally better equipped to deal with all sorts of audio formats and decoding options than TVs anyway.
