I find it very odd that there are TVs that don't pass 5.1 on the optical out. I have 4 TVs and have never encountered this. 2 samsungs from 2006 and 2 songs from 2010 pass through whatever signal is sent in over HDMI regardless of its encoding too.

Limiting this ability to the tuner input also makes no sense to me.
There have been virtually NO TVs that pass 5.1 on the optical out, when the input is via HDMI. A couple of Toshiba models did this, but very few others. Are you sure you are not confusing 5.1 with the "synthetic" Dolby surround that your A/V receiver creates from the PCM that comes from the TV?
