The output for that is 5.1, and that's for decoding from the tuner.
If you have a cable box/Blu-Ray/PS3/Xbox, I suggest you run the optical audio directly from that perhipheral to your receiver to get the benefit of surround sound directly.
I have the above mentioned TV and tried to hook up an optical audio cable to my audio receiver, it did not work. I think personally it is my receiver. Anyway on to my question, what type of sound (i.e. 5.1, 2 channel) does the TV set put out through the optical cable? I think I read in the manual that it only puts out 2 channel sound, but I might have misread that.
Thanks for the time.
