Stereo Audio Question
I have been using a HTPC for close to 15 years. I just recently upgraded to a system with HDMI capabilities, and have a question.
When I play video content with 5.1 sound, the audio is the full home theater sound that I expect. When I play MP3's or other stereo audio the sound is horrible, it literally sounds like it is coming out of a tin can. I am not using any special players, just an older version of Winamp or Windows Media Player.
I recently upgrade my receiver, also to an HDMI capable unit, but the issues had started before that.
I'm not sure where to look in my configuration to improve this. Is it the player software? Possibly my receiver settings?
The system is a VM40B - using the onboard Realtek HDMI.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
