Might of put this in the wrong spot so I'll repost here,
First post here so Hi all!
I am near completing my HTPC build and started testing things and just found out last night I cant pass full surround sound through my TV to my AVR. setup goes htpc>tv>avr. my avr only has optical inputs so no hdmi pass thru. On my custom build it would be pretty hard to get the optical out to work.I am stuffing a mid range gaming computer in a nes, with the I/O panel of the motherboard hidden in the nes.
I tried figuring it out last night for about an hour,will try fresh drivers tonight if I have time.
would really like to get this to work thru a EDID edit or some other software if possible ,let me know if you need any more info.
I really like my avr its been so good to me the last 10 years would be a pity to get a new one.
Any help to get me going in the right direction would be awesome.This is new territory for me, I never had to deal with not getting my 5.1+sound to work from my normal rig tho that is thru a optical out.
All I know this is going to drive me nuts until it is fixed lol.
