Thanks for getting back to me.

You will need to have an optical cable connected from the TV's OPTICAL AUDIO OUT socket to the Pioneer receiver, then select the TV as the sound source to listen to the sound from the TV through the surround sound system.

If you still don't get surround sound then let me know the model number of your Samsung Smart TV so I can check if it is capable of outputting dolby surround sound.
