How to take 7.1 pre-outs from HTPC to AVR?
My AVR (Pioneer Elite 47TX) cannot decode the modern DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD formats. I am otherwise very happy with this unit. Rather than spending money on replacing it, I would like to explore options which would allow me to send decoded signals as 7.1 "pre" outs from my HTPC, that I could then feed to 7.1 pre-in's of my AVR.
What would be a good economical way to obtain 7.1 pre-outs from HTPC while playing movies etc through video players like VLC, PowerDVD, etc?
Thanks very much.
