Getting 5.1 sound from PS5 with the Z-5500


Novice Member
Hey! I am having some trouble getting 5.1 working with my PS5. I have the Z-5500 and have it plugged into the Philips 4K OLED754 with an optical cable, then the PS5 is plugged into the TV with HDMI 2.1. I've tried all sorts and I think my TV can't output 5.1 after taking the PS5. I know absolutely nothing about sound though and it's pretty confusing.

Someone suggested on a similar thread that an audio extractor would help. Like this. Could someone give me some advice on how I can get 5.1 to work? For almost a year I use it only with stereo x2 and it's a bit sad... 😢

I've got the same tv, have you gone into sound options and set the digital output to multi channel?
