No one said it's ok. I'm waiting for it too and I'm very unhappy it's missing. They said it will be patched in early 2014. Crying on the forums won't make it come faster.  They will tell us when it's ready. How was your post more helpful?

Yeah, it would have been good to get this earlier but we just need to wait.

Lots of TV's these days thankfully pass-through the 5.1 audio via the HDMI and back out from the Optical port on the TV. So at least some of us can work around the issue just now. Might be worth a check to see if you can do this.

@ Borss39 -

"When it's ready"? It *should* have been ready for launch... [Ditto for pull-DLNA media streaming, playback of media on USB devices, and other stuff the 360 has yet bizarrely the Xbox One does not]

It is a basic feature, especially for a console touted as the "one box" you need, a console MS claim to be an "all-in-one entertainment system".

No Dolby Digital means anyone who wants to enjoy the Dolby Digital soundtrack is out of luck.

No Dolby Digital means anyone who uses surround sound headphones is out of luck.

My Sharkoon headphones are still connected to my 360, as there is no point connecting them to my Xbox One.

And if I want to watch a Blu-ray that has Dolby instead of DTS, I have to use my PS3...

"Crying on the forums" is apparently EXACTLY what is needed!  It's sad that the PS4 is walking all over the XB1.  The XB1 ships with a sloppy "whale tail" controller reminiscent of the original Xbox, no games worth playing (like Resogun on the PS4), and not even the ability to use DD 5.1 sound.  Honestly, between this and Win8, I think MS is circling the drain!  If not for Kinect, which obviously blows away every other interactive camera, there would be no reason at all to buy an Xbox One.

And yes, I own both a PS4 and an XB1.

It would just make the console cost more at launch.
