Yes, it's because the receiver has PLII memorized as the surround mode for 2ch digital signals. Typically these will come in as PCM 2.0 or DD 2.0 but there is nothing special about DTS 2.0, it's just a stereo signal. If it makes you feel better you can change the surround mode to DTS Neo:6 instead of Dolby PLII.

HP Pavilion p6740f - DVI to HDMI cable to Denon receiver to projector?

Hi All:



I own a basic HP Pavilion p6740f desktop tower. Tonight, I'm moving it from the upstairs office to the downstairs media room. The media room is set up with all of the components, bluray, xbox360, dvr, etc in the front of the room, and the projector, mounted to the ceiling, in the back of the room. I'm planning on putting my HP Pavilion p6740f tower with the other components in the front of the room.


I plan on using the built in Windows Media Center on my PC (Windows 7) via my xbox 360. However, my PC doesn't have an HDMI output. It DOES have a DVI output.



My question: IF I HOOK UP A DVI TO HDMI CABLE FROM MY HP Pavilion p6740f PC, TO A DENON AVR 591 RECEIVER, WHICH PUSHES HDMI OUT TO MY OPTOMA HD25 LV PROJECTOR, WILL THE SIGNAL BE INTERPRETED CORRECTLY, OR WILL I NEED TO BUY AN HDMI CARD FOR MY PC TO USE INSTEAD?



Whether it's 740 p/i, or 1080 p/i, I could care less, as long as it's not 480 i/p.



This is a very specific question, so I plan to post it at hp.com as well.



Thanks for any suggestions you might have.



Sincerely Yours,



zebrafetish2000

Shouldn't be an issue, as the display (projector in the case) dictates to the receiver what resolution to display in, but just so you know, you won't get any audio with that, just video, so if your computer has SPDIF optical output, use that, but you will only get DTS and Dolby sound, not DTS MA HD or Dolby True HD as those can only be decoded via HDMI to HDMI cables

Excellent advice Quicksilv3r. This did in fact work exactly as described. My HP PC has a digital coax output. My Denon receiver has a digital coax input...so they we go. It works very well for all sorts of things. Check out http://www.techsupportalert.com/5-Be...ming-Sites.htm for some free content that I've just started dabbling into.

Thanks!!!

Hey guys, I have an issue with my 391 when using the hdmi from my laptop, running windows 8.1.
When I am playing music or videos it is fine and I can both hear and see it on my screen and speakers. But when I loaded Ableton, (software) I could only hear the sounds coming through my laptop speakers.

Help me out

Music production applications often have custom output options. Have you checked for audio output options in the Ableton software you are using?

Thanks for the input, and no I haven't checked, but here's what I think you might be talking about?
