Can someone tell me how I can play audio files on my HTPC using the Logic 7 surround mode (or any 5.1 surround mode) in the Harman Kardon AVR 354?
In my HTPC I have a 4850 video card which is connected by an HDMI cable to an AVR 354 with the latest software update. Audio and video seems to work except that when I play music on my PC, the 354 only provides 2 channel stereo and Dolby Virtual Surround (2 channel) surround modes. The Logic 7 surround modes are disabled.
Before I updated to the latest 354 software, I did have some limited success in changing the Media Server source to a non-HDMI set up, then changed the Music surround mode to Logic 7, and then changed the audio and video source back to HDMI. I did play Pandora in Logic 7. Now, as soon as I play any audio the 354 switches to multi-channel pcm from Logic 7.
I've reviewed other threads and have tried some other recommendations but I still only get 2.1 sound. I've played my audio files using Winamp, WMP 11, and the latest version of VLC.
