LG TV won't play HQ sound through internal spkrs


Standard Member
Hi all,

The movies in question are all files being played from an external HD.

I'm not expecting my LG UHD TV to 'play' 5.1 sound etc, but wanted to be sure there are no settings workarounds on the TV to enable 'converting' HQ output, before having to buy an external speaker set up....

Secondly, if I do need to buy a speaker, a small budget sound bar with hdmi probably.... my question there is will the sound bar output/convert the 5.1/7.1 into 2.0?

UPDATE: Oddly just tried 3 other UHD files, and despite the same error message from the TV it WILL play the audio... It does not like the Star Trek with 5.1 though...
