guys, i am using ATI4870 as my graphic card in my PC, and i got a Creative XtremeGamer Fatal1ty as my soundcard
I just start up a Home Theater system, and if I would want to play movies in my TV, how should i set up my HTPC to my Home Theater system so that my AVR will do the audio decoding job, instead of my PC graphic card/sound card to do the job?
my AVR is the onkyo 805, so should i just take out the soundcard from my PC, and direct connect my ati4870 to the AVR using the HDMI cable
i connect my HDMI direct from my ATI4870 to the display , and connect my sound via toslink/coaxical digital cable to my AVR from my soundcard?
which should be the correct way to let my AVR do the decoding job, and not my soundcard or graphic card do it?
