There is always this...

 

http://www.amazon.co...slink converter

 

Supposedly it will allow 5.1 to come off, even when connected to a TV. It strips the audio first. These things are hit 'n miss. Some really do it, some only do it if the next piece is not a TV.

^Thanks for suggestion, but I'd prefer something cheaper as I only want this for a few movies.
