Hmmmm. The first of those devices has a warning:

IMPORTANT NOTE! This device will NOT decode 5.1-channel signals. It will ONLY convert 2-channel digital stereo (PCM) input signals to analog stereo output. This will not work with TVs that only output 5.1-channel digital signals!

And the TV's manual was quoted as mentioning 5.1.


The two products together make sense, assuming there's no single device that has both connections. But I'm not sure about the 2-channel vs. 5.1-channel signals. It would seem to me that a port capable of handling 5.1-channel could also handle 2-channel, but what do I know?

In the manual, the generic picture of a stereo receiver (flanked by several box speakers) is labeled 'Dolby Digital Decoder' if that helps any.

Or here's the manual if you want to look for yourself:
