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

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

Most TV's now connect via HDMI leads. If your surround system doesn't have these then you will not be able to pass the signals. Some HDMI cables don't always pass the signals so make certain you have a good one that can.
However if the TV has a optical lead you can still pass the sound from the TV to your system. Assuming the system has an optical connection.

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.

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.

Connect the PS3 to your TV with the hdmi cable and to the surround sound system with a digital optical cable, then set your PS3 to output sound through the optical port (through the sound options menu) and you're good to go!
