Okay so where do I begin... I am currently using a Vizio S4251w as a 5.1 Surround Sound system. The system does not include HDMI support so I am stuck with an optitcal cord to switch between my varying devices. Now this isnt a problem but I am getting a new device that doesn't support an optical cord only HDMI. The TV I am currently using is a 2011 Samsung Model with 4 HDMI ports. I am also currently using a HDMI only splitter because I have 5 devices that use HDMI. The splitter is Kinivo 4 way splitter. My question is how do I recieve actual 5.1 DTS and DD through this no optical cord device. I do not want simulated or stereo surround sound. Thanks for the help.
