I have just finished building my HTPC with the help of ASSASSIN's guide (a huge thanks!)
For about 90% of our TV watching, I just use the speakers that are built into the TV. I do have a HD DTS capable AVR that has all the HDMI cables plugged into from a variety of sources, including the HTPC, and then just one main HDMI cable going to the TV.
I am using XBMC (Neon Skin) and I cant figure how to get sound thru to the TV speakers? Is there a pass-thru setting somewhere on XBMC ? I have looked and looked, but cant figure out this small problem.
BTW, I just got my HTPC up and running and have finished transfering about 5TB of data to the local drives that are in it - i dont have a media server... yet...!
Thanks in advance!
