When I select Sound system speakers it doesnt work (made sure my function is set to TV on surroud system).

What other connections do i need to make?

You do not say what kind of receiver you are using.

Also what is the STB.

As indicated above, do you have a sound system? What is the make/model of that system. Note that in order to get DD5.1 audio from a sound system you need to connect directly from the STB and not "through" the TV. See the following post - bolding:

Hi thanks for the replies I appreciate it.

My sound system is a Sony DAV-HDX975WF. My STB has optical or component. With the optical I could go straight to tv or straight to STB. what is the best way to get the best sound?
