Chromcast and Marantz SR4200


Novice Member
I am using a Marantz 4200 Surround Receiver optically coupled to my Sony TV, which has a Chrome cast in it's HDMI port.
I do get sound in all 5 speakers, but not real surround sound.
Front and center speakers are playing their surround signals, but surround speakers only play a low volume of the sound coming from the front speakers. The front right speaker plays all right surround sounds, front and back. The left front speaker plays all left sounds.
I guess my TV does not play surround on the optical connection.
What do I do?
There are no HDMI input in the receiver.
Can I buy a HDMI box that sends HDMI video to the TV and Surround sound optically to the receiver, while taking the signal from the Chrome cast?
