[QUOTE="sanfordmay, post: 6249010]I can back that up. I get sound over HDMI through my TV and sound via my receiver via optical, so I turn down the TV.
As for headsets, right now it's wired only via the controller, but this is it how it works. Plug headphones into your controller and set your audio settings for your controller headphone jack to "all" -- that's chat and game audio, and interface sounds and probably movies and whatever. All audio goes through the controller to your headphones, not through the TV and/or receiver. Unplug the headphones. Sound is automatically routed to the TV and/or receiver. I leave mine set that way so if the kids want to play and I'm trying to read or something they can just plug in headphones, and unplugging them you get the full sound system back.[/QUOTE]
Ok, so I'm in the same boat here. I'm looking at the turtle beach elite 800 headset that comes out in October. I currently have the playstation 4 hooked up to a bose surround system reciever via HDMI, and from the reciever to the TV. The headset requires the optical out from the playstation, so my question is...I can output through the bose system, and through the optical cable/headset simultaneously? I think that's what you guys are saying, I'm just making sure before I spend $300 on a headset.
