    Hi, I have Samsung 40MU6100 TV and Samsung J5100K Home Theater unit and I can't figure out how to set Dolby Digital, including DD+

    With HDMI cable connected from the HT to TV (ARC) or optical cable, I only get stereo (PCM) and DTS Neo 2:5 (which I think only upmix the stereo channel). I've tried different HDMI & optical cables I have but the result is the same. I also have upgraded the TV and HT firmware to the latest version but it doesn't solve the problem.

    I'm running out of ideas here, please help! thanks [​IMG]

    What is your source? Because if it's not the TV itself, like a streaming device or disc player, all you will get when you route it through the TV first is stereo. To get 5.1 you have to connect it directly to the HT unit.
