Samsung HT-J5500 & Xbox One... issues.

by seanmwaple / October 10, 2016 6:26 AM PDT

I have asked this everywhere and cant get an answer.

So I have a Samsung un55fh6200 TV, xfinity cable box, Xbox one, Samsung htj5500 5.1 system.
I have Xbox hdmi out to TV hdmi in.
Xfinity Cable box out to Xbox in.
Then I run the receiver hdmi out to the other hdmi in on the TV.
I have optical from receiver to Xbox. Receiver only has one hdmi output. No hdmi in either.

When I go into sound settings on the Xbox I have surround on and it lets me chose Dts or dolby digital for the optical audio but hdmi doesn't let me Choose anything but stereo uncompressed. How can I get the hdmi 5.1 uncompressed setting on the Xbox to enable the 5.1 surround sound without having to Unplug my cable box from the Xbox . Having the seamless transition from TV to gaming is something I can't give up... Any options?

Clarification Request
Is this a duplicate?

I checked and see we've been over this.

But I was unclear about HD audio pass through. It's never a sure thing. Why sellers and makers aren't telling all about this is unclear. My bet is they don't want to lose the sale.

Basically if someone will just verify that the optical bitstream format DTS digital is just as good as HDMI uncompressed 5.1 then Ill be good lol

In reply to: yeah

The AVS Forum (found with google.) Sorry if no one will tell you about passing HD audio and video but it's an area that is rather well done with too many folk going up in flames over it.

Some disagree about forced HDCP (I'll take it you know how to google acronyms) on HD content, but even games are doing that now.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
