How to Stream in 5.1 Settings?

Morning all,

Another question if I may please........

My new setup is working really well and I'm chuffed to bits with it, but I need some help with some settings though. The surround sound works fine when playing discs but not when streaming from the TV through the AVR. It streams in stereo or all zone stereo but not 5.1.

I've checked the TV settings, and the AVR senses the signal automatically. The cable is HDMI UHD eARC and no optical cable connected.

Denon AVR X2300W and Samsung UE40MU6120K.

Any ideas please?

At the bottom of the remote there are four sound mode buttons.

While playing something from the TV, press the Movie button and you will be presented with this screen where you can choose/change the sound mode. The AVR will remember this and switch to it when playing this format again.

I would suggest Dolby Surround or DTS Neural X as these are up mixers which will expand stereo to all available speakers e.g 5.1. (This is not the same a Multi Ch Stereo which just duplicates the two front channels in all speakers.)
