According to the manual, if I am reading it correctly, it will only let you pick AV 1-6 or V-Aux. I didn't know if there was another way around it. Maybe I am reading it wrong, here is the page from the manual:
Is your computer not capable of sending multi-channel audio over HDMI?
It is. I am trying to connect my computer to 2 different TV's and will toggle one off and one on at a time for using Windows Media Center. TV1 was connected HDMI and thru the receiver. TV2 was connected DVI with a separate analog audio cable not going thru the receiver.
The problem was when I switched off TV1 to TV2 everything was fine but switching back MCE had a fit with the audio and would eventually crash. It seemed to have something to do with having the HDMI audio connection and then not.
I figured if I used 3 separate audio cables (analog) to the Multi CH input on the receiver and split the front channel cable out before the receiver I could connect it to TV2.
This all seemed to work but I just could not get a picture on TV1 while in Multi CH mode.
I am sure this is confusing Edited by scottdw - 7/19/13 at 5:30am
