Hello, I'm not sure if this is th ebest subforum for this, but I figured it's a good place to start.
I'm having some problems getting more than stereo out of my laptop over HDMI.
My source is a blu-ray of Life of Pi that I ripped to my laptop.
My laptop comes with RealTek HD audio, and I'm plugging my laptop into my Denon 1612 receiver via HDMI.
When I try toggling the sound mixer settings on the Denon, I only see Stereo, MultiCH in, Mono, Virtual Surround, etc When I switch to the "Direct" setting (what i typically use when watching a Blu-Ray from my Samsung BD Player), it still just gives stereo, some I'm thinking this is a source problem from my laptop.
When I go to the Windows 8 sound control settings and I right click on the DENON-AVAMP and I test the sounds, I get sound test beeps properly from all 5 speakers and the sub...but the movies are still playing 2.0 while watching the movie.? Also, in the RealTek HD App, it does not allow me to select a speaker configuration, it's greyed out with stereo selected, I was expecting to see a 5.1 or some sort of Dolby option.
Thanks for any tips/suggestions
