No digital via HDMI ARC

Hi All,

I get Digital Audio via my Opitcal to Px4 headset, however using HDMI I can only get stereo?

Setup is as follows.

Xbox One -> HDMI -> Samsung TV ARC -> HDMI -> Samsung Soundbar

Anyone have any tips on how to get this working? or should this work at all?

Hi, had the same problems (though with a philips tv and home cinema set) with HDMI ARC. After hours of almost throwing remotes out of the window i can only come to one simple conclusion. The xbox does not yet support HDMI ARC. Please DO correct me if i'm wrong

No problems here connecting the xbox through HDMI ARC and getting surround sound so yes it supports it.

This doesn't look right to me (i could be wrong) Xbox One -> HDMI -> Samsung TV ARC -> HDMI -> Samsung Soundbar
Should be....
Xbox One -> HDMI -> Samsung Soundbar (must be a ARC compatible soundbar with the correct HDMI sockets in/out) -> HDMI -> Samsung TV ARC / Headset optical -> Samsung Soundbar change setting on xbox
