I’m interested in possibly purchasing the WD Live Hub for use with my older component TV/AV receiver. Neither support HDMI.
Can the optical output on the WD Live Hub send 5.1 audio to my av receiver which is capable of playing back dolby digital, and DTS surround sound? I got the impression from reading the literature that the optical out will only support 2 channel stereo. Some of the posts in the forum now lead me to believe otherwise.
Can someone clarify this for me? If it does support surround sound, what movie surround sound file types would I be able to stream from the USB drive built into the WD Live Hub, out the optical and into my av receiver successfully?
Any clarification would be extremely appreciated
