Just a general anouncement:

EDID-override is now working with Intel HD Graphics GPU's 4th generation and up. I have tested this with a Dell and Toshiba laptop with an 4600 IGP. IRIS pro should also work. You just need a 4th generation CPU (or later).

for more information, send me a PM and I'll walk you through.

OTOH multichannel is possible only with compressed audio (DD or DTS). Bottom-line: stream DD or DTS audio from the application and it will work. For games audio must be live-encoded to AC3 to DTS (there's a hack for Realttek drivers - search for link in the threads).
Hi there,

I know this post was from some time ago, but I am looking to solve my gaming sound problem and as much as I have searched around here for it, I seem to be going in circles. If you wouldn't mind pointing me in the right direction, I would appreciate it.

HTPC (NVidia 780TI) --HDMI--> Vizio P65-C1 --Optical--> Vizio SB-4551

(I have other devices connected to the TV as well - PS4, Xbox 360, Bell receiver) so that's why I am not connecting HTPC optical directly to the Soundbar.

Here is my issue. From Plex, my sound is what it should be - DD5.1, AC3, whatever, but from my games, all are CDDA 2.0. Now after reading the threads and trying EDID route, I finally understood why. Question is:

How do I do that Live-encoding you mentioned above? Do I need other sound hardware? If so, how do I get that sound output going through the NVIDIA HDMI connector going to the TV? Or is this is software live encoding option.

Appreciate any help.
