Why don’t I get surround sound when I play movies on my TV through the USB port?

I have a 1 GB external hard drive which I attach to my TV for movies through the USB port. My question is why it is I can only get sound through the TV speakers and not my surround sound system. I have tried everything that I know of and no surround sound with the USB port…

    they need HDMI cable for surround, also try to connect the hard drive with HD movies to see if you will get surround soune
