HELP, Only stereo sound for, TV, DVD, Bluerays, Games by Xb1 HDMI, all others work in 5.1 not connected to Xb1.

Using the Xb1, I hooked up my HD cable box in the HDMI input, Xbox1 to TV, TV optical out to my receiver and Im only getting stereo sound. The TV is optical out is set to Raw. The 360 plays DVD and games in full 5.1 DTS through the receiver. I've gone though the settings in Xb1, When I hook up my Cable box directly to my TV the receiver kicks in full surround, but when Hooked back up to Xb1 it's only stereo.

 Even blue rays on Xb1 only play in stereo and not full 5.1 DTS, Dobly, just stereo. Is it me, or is the Xb1 that crappy of a sound decoder that it only does stereo? I love the XB1 but I had stereo sound on a SNES. If I am missing a set up, please let me know, I like the Xb1 cable options but when watching movies it sucks cause of the stereo sound and not full 5.1

Tv is a 42" LED 1080p 120hz Insignia

Sony STR-DA333ES receiver

 Playing a BD in the PS3 sound works fine, put it in Xb1 and it is only stereo, please help me get it set to Dobly, DTS 5.1

Thanks

I've got the same problem i'm afraid, I have to use the optical out on the xbox one to my receiver, that way I can get 5.1

The XB1 does not support Dolby Digital (yet, ever?) over HDMI or the optical out, only DTS. However you have to set the DTS option in the XB1 settings to output DTS as it comes defaulted as stereo for some reason. I can't tell from your post if you did this or not?  See this page for more info on where to find it support.xbox.com/.../configure-audio-settings.
