I hooked up PC to the receiver via hdmi and want to also use toslink since my sound card is better then the video card sound.
I have it connected to game witch is labeled game and also have the toslink in the game connection but only the sound from the hdmi is going thru.
I have HDMI and optical (toslink) plugged in at the same time. I am trying to get audio from the optical(toslink)
Using a PC with nvidea video card for hdmi and a ht omega clario halo for optical (toslink). Went to manage audio settings in the control panel and selected S/PDIF Pass-throu for my sound card and also tried just the speakers one but my receiver still says hdmi on it. But the nvidea sound one works fine.
Maybe it's not possible to do both at the same time?
Before i was using VGA strait to the TV and toslink to the receiver and it worked just fine.
Sometimes the hdmi thing works best by turning on the display first then working your way back through the chain to the source. A Harmony and other programmable universal remotes can be programmed with special instructions and/or delays to compensate as well....
Can you just skip the receiver for video and plug your PC directly into your TV / monitor?
Then your toslink would be audio only to your receiver and you could select which sound device was supplying your audio, hdmi or toslink.
