I think it might be a handshake issue. Maybe the W9 is telling my laptop it only accepts stereo pcm? I can definitely see that only a stereo HDMI signal is going in.

Otherwise it might be that the laptop's sound card for some reason only outputs in stereo.

I guess the only way to find out is to plug the laptop via HDMI into the receiver.

Does anyone get 5.1 outputted via toslink from a HDMI signal?

Yes, first you will need to configure your notebook to output DD in its 5.1 form through HDMI. Connect notebook to A/V receiver directly. Be sure that is set for 5.1 and that there is passhtrough. This depends on the drivers and software you use on your notebook. If you share the model of the notebook we can see what are the proper settings for it.

best, d.
