I.e. Blueray player connected to TV via HDMI (sending both video and 5.1 surround sound). If i connect the TV to the Surround Sound System via the TV's optical out does the TV pass through the 5.1 data or does it down mix it to stereo?

Thanks

Answer: 
Hello,

Connecting a HDMI cable + audio optical cable will indeed output 5.1 if your sound system is Dolby.

I hope this helps.

Answer: 
Hi there.
For my TV I bought Sony's own 'Sony CMU-BR200' and OH MY GOSH! Being very honest it's almost way too good just for webcam/Skype use. The picture through my Skype is incredible and I'm, told by various friends around the world who i have spoken with that the sound is sensational too. A little expensive perhaps at over £70 but if like me you use Skype and other online face to face gadgets it's just sublime in everyway you can imagine.
Good hunting to you.

Hi Kaykay, thank you for your question regarding the Sony KDL42W653 42 Inch Full HD 1080p Smart LED TV.

I have looked into this for you and I can confirm this TV is Skype compatible, however it does not have a built-in camera and you will need to purchase a separate web camera. I can also advise this TV offers a full 1080p HD picture with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.
