PC couch gaming - 5.1 home theatre surround as simple as HDMI to AVR?

Hey guys,


I'm considering putting together a gaming PC to use with my OLED/Couch/xbox controller.


To get 5.1. sound with my home theatre speakers, is it as simple as plugging in HDMI cable going from the graphics card to my receiver? My TV is about 30 feet away from where the pc would go - i just need a premium certified 30 foot HDMI cable?

Is there anything i'm missing or is it pretty basic - make an input on my AVR for my pc and that's it?

That’s what I have. Actually, PC to AVR to projector. I do 7.1 and have never had an issue. I think I have a 40 ft active premium HDMI cable and it’s never been a problem.

Love me some couch gaming. Actually the only way I play. . Good luck!

Thanks i wasn't sure if it was that simple. I have a full Dolby Atmos speaker setup.

My setup is from gfx card to avr to screen/projector. Love it! However, im looking to upgrade my screen from my 32" Samsung 1080p to a 32" 1440p monitor but not sure if that'll work because my avr possibly wont support the new resolution. Its a Sony HT AS5, supports 3d but 2k or 4k feed doubt it? Something to think about i guess is does your avr support the resolution you want?
