    Can anyone help me here because I have a 5.1 system and I'm trying to plug it into my tv but I can only see an audio in plug. I've been told that will work to give the audio out to the speakers but not 5.1 surround sound.

    If it helps, heres a link to the tech specs to see what is available. PS51D495A1K - TECH SPECS | Support Samsung

    The speakers unit has:
    Audio input jacks (Green, black, orange)
    Audio source inout jacks (White, red)

    Hopefully someone will understand this and help

    Those speakers aren't suitable. As I suspected they are for connection to the corresponding coloured connections on a PC sound card or MB. I'm afraid if your TV doesn't have analogue audio OUT or TV OUT over SCART you wouldn't be able to use them. Even if you did, as you've already been informed it would not be 5.1.
