    So similar to another recent thread. I have tivo with hdmi to a Samsung un60f7100 tv. Another hdmi arc cable back to a arc splitter, so I can do optical audio to a Sonos playbar.

    tivo is set to Dolby digital

    Netflix on tv outputs dd 5.1
    Netflix on tivo outputs stereo. Really anything on tivo is stereo to the Sonos. The tv will only let me select pcm. I hear the tivo beeps so I know it is pcm.

    Thought it was the cable, but the smart tv apps and firetv output just fine in 5.1 to Sonos.

    can’t figure out why the tv won’t allow dd out to the receiver.

    Can you test optical straight from the TiVo to the Sonos playbar? Are you just using the arc splitter to convert to optical or are you sending the signal somewhere else as well besides the Sonos?
