Optical sound

Just looking for some help. I have set my WD live tv hub to output the sound through my optical out which seems to work fine when directly into my surround sound. Unfortunately when I use an optical splitter (also have sound coming from my cable box) it doesn’t seem to work. My splitter worked fine previously and I have since bought a new one but same problem!

can anyone help please?

It seems to be that the media player is not ready for a splitter… try adding this to the ideas forum to see if WD can add that on the next firmware update.

Thanks - will do.
