I added the ATI Realtek HDMI driver and the lpcm AVR is showing icons for 5 or 7 speakers but I am still just getting stereo when using the 2 channel version of Power DVD that came with the Blu-ray drive or when using Media Player Classic Home Cinema. I am testing the setup with Blade Runner Blu-ray which is 5.1 and makes good use of the surround speakers. I am using the HDMI cable and have not plugged in to the motherboard the multiple channel audio cables.
The Realtek HDMI Output Properties dialogue box does not look the same as the one in your example. Mine says that it supports 8 channel and 16 an 24 bit depth. But HDCP is not supported.
It also list 32 to 192kz and DTS audio and Dolby Digital. I do not have the check boxes.
It could be that I have not selected the correct audio track in the movie but I suspect I may need to buy a license or an upgrade for Power DVD.
Can you tell me my alternatives for getting correct audio? I know this has been gone over but I do not get it yet.
