How to setup PC to TV 5.1 surround sound (HDMI)?
I have a 5.1 system with a receiver, speakers and sub, in my living room, and i have connected my pc to my projector.
Current setup: PC > HDMI > hdmi switch & audio extractor
hdmi switch & audio extractor > HDMI (out) > Projector
hdmi switch & audio extractor > Optical > Resever
I can get audio to the spekers from the PC. But i can't get real 5.1 surround sound to work. I can't change the default format to 5.1 and in "configure speaker" only FR and FL work.
Do i need to buy a sound card and run optical all the way to the resever from my PC? And if i would need to buy a sound card would it have to have to be a surround sound sound card or is it just necessary that it has a optical port?

If the audio coming from the computer is not 5.1 audio, then it would be 5.1 audio down the line, either.
