Not ideal when this happens but you can get around it. Getting the audio out of the HDMI signal is tricky as it's all integrated in one cable, so you need to grab a splitter akin to this one (not really shopped around mind). So it would go PS4 via HDMI to splitter, another HDMI from splitter to TV and an optical from the splitter to the DVD player/surround sound unit. Honestly surprised they got rid of the optical on the slim model. Anyway, hope this helps!

Optical from your surround sound to your TV, if your TV has optical. Then anything you watch on your TV, should go through your surround sound when you set your surround sound to TV option.
