I just bought my first Media Center PC, HTPC. It is a Gateway DX4640-UBC01A0 w/TV tuner and HDMI output.
Everything works fine, and I'm getting used to working with a HTPC, as opposed to using cable or directv.
Anyway, my problem is I received the computer, but I can't get my digital output to work. I have a Realtek sound card with Integrated 8-Channel (7.1) High Definition Audio.
This digital audio is output via 1/8" phone jacks. Anywone have these their HTPC?
I hooked my HDTV output to my plasma, and the 1/8" digital output for L/R to my PeachTree Audio Decco Integrated Amplifier.
Anyway, when I go into Vista and enable the digital output, I get nothing. Anyone have any pointers on how to get my digital output working?
When I run the test in Vista, I see the volume bars moving, but I hear nothing through the speakers. Am I missing something?
Do I need a new sound card?
Thanks in advance.
