Hey all
When playing my PS5 I'm not getting 7.2/5.1 audio
It's plugged into an Amp/Av receiver and the to the TV
Every now and then I'll get 5.1 but 99% of the time not

What sound settings are you using on the PS5?

On the PS5, long press the ps button on the controller, go to settings, sound, audio output, set it to hdmi device, set the HDMI device type to Audio Visual Receiver (AVR). Go down to the AVR speakers section and then select as appropriate, be that 5.1 or 7.1. At the very bottom of this screen select Linear PCM as the preferred Audio Format.

In all of your games, check the in-game settings in the audio section and make sure to choose Home Theatre or something equivalent as the sound mode option.
