So what are my options for 5.1?
So it kinda dawned on my today that I am not getting true 5.1 from my Vizio S4251W 5.1 sound bar system via my HTPC..
My HTPC is a NUC D54250WYK
With HDMI going from NUC to Samsung 40 LED TV Model UN40D5500
and optical going from Same TV to Vizio Sound bar.
What I want to so is interface the Sound bar directly with my NUC to get true 5.1 surround.
I know I will need to get a display port1.2 to HMDI converter for video and then rely on the HDMI port on NUC for sound what will I need to act as a pass thru for this to happen Converter of some sort? Splurge on a receiver ( dont want to do that ) or get a USB sound card for the NUC which has a optical/coaxial out ??
Not lookign to spend a bunch of money but any suggestions are helpful !!!
thanks for helping this noob out.
