This set up has been working completely by correlation of HDMI to my TV then optical out of the TV to my beneficiary. The entire my correlations go to the tv via HDMI and I acquire at least 5.1 digital surround sound to pass through. Well at present I acquire the bright idea to utilize Windows Media Center (Windows 7) and essentially utilize my HTPC for its full intended use and cut out any transcoding compression. Need some help here.

I had to utilize a program called Moninfo to comprehend the accurate EDID of the receiver, generate an innovative .inf file and load that to facilitate as the monitor driver. The Windows observes your receiver as a monitor. This cured my predicament and the 5.1 and 7.1 alternatives then appeared in the configuration settings for my hdmi audio apparatus in windows.

I determine to definitely endeavor that Moninfo. On the other hand, my receiver does not have encompassed the HDMI. I had connected the pc to my TV unswervingly as HDMI and my optical out directly to my receiver. I tranquil have comprised a 2.0 merely through my optical out. Is it for the reason that it thinks the optical out is going to the TV. They are two dissimilar drivers it seems though. I have comprised the similar setup and have been struggling with the similar issue.

Re: Working with HTPC HDMI 5.1 and TV sound streaming

When I test the speakers, the every speaker misses the primary and subsequent or so of the test tone. The amplifier switches up to 5.1 when the test tone set in motion, missing the first second or so, and then hit it off in. It resets back, on the other hand, connecting each tone. I have encompassed and been vaguely planning to roll back the NVIDIA driver to observe if the predicament goes away, or wait for an to bring up to date and anticipate it gets fixed, other than have not gotten around to it yet. On one occasion in a movie, the sound is stable, so it is not a big deal for my setup.
