I was wondering if I should be able to get 5.1 surround sound out of a Toslink cable? I have a 2011 Mac Mini and would like to have an HDMI cable running from the Mac Mini into my Panasonic TV and then a Toslink cable from the TV to my Pioneer receiver. The problem is, when I setup it up this way, I am only able to get 2 ch. stereo and when I try to play a surround sound movie within Plex, I get static. Is this normal? I could have my mac mini going to my receiver via HDMI and then another HDMI from my receiver to my TV to get 5.1 sound, but I have found that I get a few blue screens and then some flickering on my TV before everything settles in. It's not a huge deal, but I have found with the HDMI and Toslink connection I get a very brief blue screen and then everything is good. I have tried changing the audio settings within Plex from HDMI and digital as well as the output without success. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
