I cannot get 5:1 surround sound out of my PC

I cannot get 5:1 surround sound out of my barebones P2-M3A3200 via the HDMI port. I have tried many HD Audio drivers from ASUS but the config on the PC only ever shows 2ch stereo (L/R).

Have I missed something obvious?
Cheers

    Hi,

    Many thanks for the response - I am connecting from the HDMI output of the PC to the HDMI input of the Sony surround sound system which also has an optical input. Its' display tells you the format of the incoming signal and it says PCM 2ch and only comes out of the 2 speakers. Unfortunately there are no 3.5mm audio sockets to connect the PC too.
    Cheers
    Ian

I am not quite sure if you are connecting the pc to a HD receiver or straight to a HD dvd player. IF you are connected to a HD dvd player only, you will need to connect your speaker to your PC to get the 5.1 sound. The sequences is Front speakers to the Lime port, Center and sub to the Orange port and rear speakers to the black port. Hope this helps you out. Good Luck

Have you seen the user guide?

The TV is intended to be an end point of the video, not a source of audio. Many TV's (monitors) don't have ANY audio, much less surround sound capability. Composite Video is theminimalist video connection for setup; Component video to the TV should suffice for viewing DVD's.

Is your TV the SOURCE of surround sound programming (via an antenna) or does the programming come from elsewhere like a Cable Box? THAT would be the source you need to tap for surround sound.

I want to connect my denon 790 to my 5:1 surround, HDMI DVD player and HD samsung 55'' LCD. what cables do i need and where to put them. thanks


You will need 1 HDMI cable to link between your DVD player and the Denon,plug the HDMI cord into the HDMI port on the back of your DVD player and the the other end into the Denon 790 HDMI port labeled DVD,then you will need another HDMI cord to go between the Denon and your LCD TV,plug one end of the HDMI cord into the Denon 790 HDMI port labeled HDMI monitor out and the other end into one of the HDMI ports on the back of your TV, it doesn't matter which one you use, just remember that you will have to change the input on the tv to that specific HDMI port when you play back a DVD and you will also have to change the Denon to DVD as your source to send the audio through the Denon to your surround sound speakers.( The Denon owners manual will help!!)

Sound Problems with HD TV


This seems to be a problem that has to do with your HDMI audio output.
First check in your TV setting if audio out is selected on your correct HDMI port. Than check if your receiver is able to receive audio via HDMI (i assume you used the HDMI connection). Some receivers have HDMI IN connections but are not able to receive audio on it, the latest receivers/sets do have this feature. If your receiver doesnot support audio IN via HDMI you can only do one thing, connect the stereo audio-out of your TV to an AUX IN connection on your receiver.
