Hello! Planning to buy a PS4 Pro but I have a very important business for me.

I want to connect the PS to the AV past the optical audio out, non hdmi and wanted to know if there is the passthrough option. I volition be playing a lot of movies from an external hdd (mkv) with different audio formats (DD plus, dts-x etc.) and don’t want to stop up non having sound. I basically want the av to do the decoding.
Thank y’all!

Here’s somebody answering someone about simultaneous hdmi out and optical out from the PS4.

“In my experience, both volition work simultaneously, but simply one will passthrough five.1. i.due east. If you lot set up HDMI to 5.1, optical output switches to stereo and vice versa. P.Southward. I tested this a while ago, not sure if it is all the same true with the latest 5.0+ updates.”

So if what you’re trying to do is transport video to your tv via hdmi and sound to your AV (any that is) via optical, you lot should set your hdmi to stereo and your optical output to 5.ane. He does apply the word ‘passthrough’ but … I don’t know if it’s unprocessed or not. I don’t remember ‘optical’ has the bandwidth to carry for case DTS v.one does information technology? … I remember it has to exist candy … possibly someone more than knowledgeable volition answer that. I believe that was ane of the big reasons folks with bang-up receivers with no hdmi in updated to a receiver with hdmi in (that and 7.1).

AV suggests analog, stereo-but, and you want PS —> Telly —> Ext Spkers?

Does your Telly fifty-fifty have analog OUTPUT? I seriously dubiety the Idiot box volition do an Analog-to-Digital conversion for you lot.

Tin always exam information technology first… everybody accept some kind of boombox, smartphone at home right, just claw it upwardly to the TV AV input run into what it does.

Here’south somebody answering someone nigh simultaneous hdmi out and optical out from the PS4.

“In my experience, both will work simultaneously, only only 1 will passthrough v.i. i.eastward. If you set HDMI to 5.1, optical output switches to stereo and vice versa. P.S. I tested this a while ago, non sure if information technology is nonetheless truthful with the latest five.0+ updates.”

And so if what you’re trying to exercise is send video to your idiot box via hdmi and sound to your AV (whatsoever that is) via optical, y’all should set your hdmi to stereo and your optical output to 5.ane. He does use the word ‘passthrough’ only … I don’t know if it’s unprocessed or not. I don’t recollect ‘optical’ has the bandwidth to carry for case DTS 5.i does it? … I retrieve it has to be processed … mayhap someone more than knowledgeable will respond that. I believe that was one of the large reasons folks with great receivers with no hdmi in updated to a receiver with hdmi in (that and seven.1).
