I want to use surround sound on my wiiu but it doesn't seem to work. I have a home theatre system with only an hdmi out on the back no hdmi in and I heard that I need an lpcm reciever to get surround sound on the wiiu and my system says lpcm on the screen when I play my wiiu so should I be able to get surround sound? Also my theatre system is a Sony bdv-e300 --- Sent from my iPhone via PowerFAQs 1.10
You need an HDMI in and out to get surround sound on the Wii U.
The Wii U supports no licensed audio codecs, and therefore only does Linear PCM 5.1. Only HDMI has the bandwidth for this, hence no optical audio output in the Wii U. --- Keep calm and hee-ho http://i.imgur.com/8JzkT.png
