That's impossible - in order for audio to work with a computer, it must be using a sound card. Mine is built into my motherboard and is Realtek. Your sound card is most likely not able to decode the multichannel audio, so that's why it is playing in stereo.
If I wanted to use my PC in my HT setup, I would need to invest in a sound card that could process Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA. Right now it is only capable of stereo, or simulated surround.
