Friends, Macbook Pro can not output surround sound on built in HDMI port but with the help of thunderbolt port HDMI adapter it can output 5.1 surround sound. I have 10m long HDMI cable so no problem but I don't understand why Macbook can not stream movies in surround sound to VLC of the firestick? I have enable Digital audio output pass through option of VLC still no surround sound.

Any help appreciated.
