Why don't you just plug the HDD straight into the TV USB socket?
That's what I have been doing, but I thought I would get better sound if it went through an AV. Am I right in thinking the TV prcoesses the sound if the HDD is plugged directly into it?
Ah right !

I have a blu-ray player with integrated surround sound that also has a USB input. So I play any files I have through that and the sound comes through the surround speakers.

The TV can also feed back audio via HDMI or via optical back to the DVD, so it could work through several paths in my system.

I do sometimes use optical when there is a live TV program I want to watch in surround.

I'm not sure that I'm actually getting 5.1 from TV broadcasts though.
