Topic: 5.1 from TV Optical only 2 channels.
I have an LG TV (C1 model)
RME Fireface UCX II
I'm connecting via optical from the TV output to the RME optical input. I am testing 5.1 movies via Netflix and Amazon.
TV has the audio options of: PCM, Auto, and Pass Through.
When I choose Auto or Pass Through, I hear static noise only.
The only option that works to give audio is PCM.
That's fine and all, however, I only receive a 2 channel signal. Even when I pick the options that output static noise, I only see the RME total FX software receiving channels 1/2 ADAT.
I'm wondering if anyone might know how I can get 5.1 channels?
LG says on their site that the optical outputs up to 5.1. Here is the article I've checked:
