Can Apple TV connect digitally to my surround processor

I want to know if I can connect the audio out to my 5.1 surround processor to get full audio instead of just connecting to the TV for audio.

    Yes you can. You can use an optical cable ( Toslink ) if your sound processor has an optical input.
