I just set up my Denon 1911 surround system at my new apartment. I decided to use it for games and LOVE how it sounds in Guild Wars 2. It really adds to the immersion of the game.
However, I went to play CS:GO and selected 5.1 in their options menu and all I get is stereo. The surround speakers don't work at all. I think I read somewhere that GW2 supports Dolby but many games like CS: GO and Borderlands (another I couldn't get it working) don't have the license for Dolby so the games cant output like that through my receiver.
I have my sound coming from my GTX580 via HDMI to my receiver, which is set to Dolby PLII (this mode is for 5.1 channel surround) in the Cinema Mode. The receiver is also showing PCM and DIG. Now, there are other modes like simulation, but I want the real thing.
Is there a specific setting on the receiver for video games that have 5.1 but not Dolby? I'm sorry, I know this is a little technical and honestly I'm not entirely sure what I need to be searching for as a solution. Is there a way to convert via software the signal to Dolby or am I missing an option on my receiver?
