Re: Soundbar 500

For surround sound the first thing you should check is if your TV can send a surround sound signal to your soundbar.  Many people have found that their TV's cannot send a Dolby Digital signal through either the optical or ARC connection.   Unfortunetly this information is not documented by many manufactures and Bose have ommited the ability to determine what type of audio stream is being recevied.   I'm hoping Bose will fix this ommision in the next update because I too would like to get the Bose Surround Speakers.  For now your best bet is to search online to see if other people get surround sound on your specific model.
