Octava HDDA12A-UK Dist. Amp+audio conv.

This little box is a 1:2 HDMI splitter with optical audio and analogue stereo out.
I had hoped that this would be able to convert a HDMI stream with 5.1 Dolby Digital into HDMI video and analogue stereo?
But this seems not to happen.
Please let me know if it is correct that the box does not extract a 5.1 Dolby Digital stream and convert it into stereo.

If I am right, the discription of the box as an audio converter is a bit misleading.
If it must be able to convert, my box is faulty.

The HDDA12A-UK doesn’t decode 5.1 DD (HDMI) to 2RCA – it’ll do 5.1 DD (HDMI) to Optical and 2.0 LPCM (HDMI) to Optical plus 2RCA.

I take it you want to forward 5.1 LPCM or Bitstream over the HDMI output?
