What the heck are they thinking not supporting 5.1 audio on the HDMI input? If you think I'm going to go back to the 90's and listen to my TV in plain stereo just to watch TV on my Xbox one MS must be crazy. I was really looking forward to consolidating everything to one input but gees this is a horrible over site. If your going to have HDMI in and encourage TV viewing through that you have to pass the Video AND audio un touched. Why am I going to lose 5.1 audio for this feature?
This must be fixed and fixed ASAP.
The Xbox One console does not support digital surround sound input over HDMI. If your cable or satellite box is sending audio data through your Xbox One over HDMI, only stereo sound will be received. For surround sound, you’ll need to consider an alternative configuration.
