Jesus, none of you lot not got optical out on your TVs? Come on, get with the times!!
It sucks, I think it is a part of DRM rearing its ugly head.
My surround headphone receiver only has 1 optical audio input. Both the ps3 and 360 are being split/merged in to 1 line. Even though My TV does have Optical out, I do not think I will be able to get surround sound out of the wii u.
