5.1 PCM Surround Sound in games - front left and front right channel not working
First, my setup:
OS: Windows 10 Professional x64 build; Nvidia drivers up to date; Onkyo Firmware up to date
NVidia Gtx 670 -connected via HDMI to > Onkyo Tx Nr 808 (PC HDMI Input)
NVidia Gtx 670 -connected via DVI to > Samsung Monitor
Onkyo Tx Nr 808 (HDMI Out Main) -connected via HDMI to > Panasonic Pt 6000 (Input 1)
5 Speakers and 1 Subwoofer connected via cable to the Onkyo
My problem is:
The front left speaker as well as the front right speaker do not emit any sound if i click on "Test" in the speakers configruation window on my desktop pc. Those two speakers remain silent. All other speakers (Rear Left and Rear Right as well as the Center and the subwoofer) do work in the PCM test. I tried the same scenario with my laptop with a Nvidia Gtx 630m resulting in the same behaviour. So i think the problem is not on the PC sided end, maybe?
My question is:
How do i get all speakers that are connected to the Onkyo Tx Nr 808 to work properly in the windows sound options in 5.1? Obviously 5.1 isn't working correctly in games because the sound that should be emitted via the 2 front speakers doesn't get "played".
The speakers do all work fine in movies and are connected like described on page 14 of the manual. I checked the cable input connection 2 times, they are wired up correctly and do emit the "white noise" sound during the Audessey calibration setup correctly.
Just for a reference, the speakers are connect to:
Description on the AV/R:
Front Right Speaker
Front Left Speaker
Surround Right Speaker
Surround Left Speaker
If you need any other information, i'll provide it. Unfortunately, i'm not allowed to post a link to the manual according to the forum rules due to my post count being lower than 5.
I tried a lot of different options and i'm running out of ideas... I read something about an "EDID Problem" but i have no idea what this in particulary means or if this is relevant.
