Been banging my head against the wall for a week now. Need someones help please.
I have an ASUS X54C laptop running Windows 7 >> connected >> to a Sherwood RD 6506 AV reciever though HDMI. My TV is a Kogan 55 inch LED also connected via HDMI. I cannot get 5.1 surround sound to work when im playing movies via VLC.
heres the hardware:
In windows 7 playback devices all i can see is Kogan TV and the laptop speakers. (Realtek HD) It doesn't pick up the AV reciever.
I have updated all drivers however still cant see the av reciever.
I've gone through every menu on the laptop, TV and AV reciever tried all possible combinations but cannot get 5.1 ch surround.
Ive been reading alot of posts on this forum regarding similar issues and was hoping one of ther gurus could help me out. Just spent $$ on AV reciever / JBL speakers and new lappy and no friggin joy
