unable to get surround sound from bluray player


Novice Member
i just bought a surround sound system and everything seems to work fine except the bluray player will not output 5.1 to the sound system.

my setup is as follows
lg tv - 55lb700vzg
satellite receiver
virgin media cable tv box
raspberry pi box
samsung bluray player - bdh5500
sony 5.1 sound system - rmtah200u

the sony system is connected via optical cable to the tv and the tv is set to pass through the audio to the optical connection.
all other boxes are connected to the tv via hdmi.
i get surround sound from all the boxes except the bluray player. i have tried all the audio settings in the player but still nothing.
all i get is stereo or i think it is stereo because the rear speakers do not work.
i have tried a different hdmi cable but no luck.
is there anything else i can try or am i missing something?

thanks in advance [emoji4]
