ARC on PS50A558


Distinguished Member
Does anyone know if the TV I have, a PS50A558 plasma, has the ARC capability to take the mutichannel DD/DTS from a source via HDMI, and send it back out to an AVR via optical?

Currently I send all multichannel bitstream direct from the sources to my AVR using either optical or digital-coax, but I'm thinking about upgrading my original FireTV box to the 4k one, which only has HDMI out, and no optical. My AVR has no HDMI inputs, so I was hoping I might be able to pass the audio through the HDMI into the TV, and back out to the AVR using the TV's optical output
