Can't get SD audio to work on Xbox One HDMI pass-through

I have Uverse TV output connected to my Xbox One via HDMI pass-through and I love it. The Xbox seams to even make the picture look better, and I can use voice commands to turn the channels.

I have a surround sound system and I have the Uverse set up to output surround sound which works great on HD channels. However, when I watch an SD channel I can't hear a darn thing. If I switch my Uverse settings to stereo it works fine, but I paid for 5.1 and darn it I'm gonna hear it. I'm using Amazon's HDMI cables which are version 1.4 so I shouldn't have an issue there. If I bypass the Xbox, the audio issue goes away. Anyone out thre have any insight for me?

I believe 5.1 surround sound is only carried on HD channels, not SD channels.

 

That said, you should not have to switch the sound options to hear SD channels, but apparently, you do.

 

Is it U-vers not sending sound becuse there is no 5.1 on the SD signal or is the 5.1 decoder incapable of passing the stereo sound through it. Try the SD channel on a TV connected HDMI to see if the stereo is being transmitted.

I had a similar problem and I went to best buy they told me to try a fiber optics audio cord. It worked for me. It's like $15

I didn't think of that.
I've got an extra fiber optics audio cable, I'll try it out.

By the way, I tried that out and it didn't work. I think the problem is that the Xbox One can only output 5.1 or stereo. It does not have an auto mode. So when I turn to a SD station that does not output in 5.1, it does not work.
