Hi everyone,

i recently bought the YAMAHA htr-2866 receiver, with 5.1 YAMAHA speaker system.
I have everything connected by hdmi leads, with 1 hdmi out to tv,
cable box (virgin ), bluray, computer. are ( hdmi 1 2 and 3 in )
cable and bluray plays audio great, but i got no computer sound, so i connected audio cable to sound input 1,

Try using onboard optical/coaxial digital out from your computer. Set default soundcard in control panel.

I have a couple computers connected to different TV/AVR's via HDMI, but no garbled sound. At a guess, I don't know if you're on windows, mac or linux, but it sounds like the setting or driver for you HDMI cable isn't correct. Is the HDMI from the computer going through your video card or is it an out from the motherboard?

Have you checked the driver?

I don't see an Audigy fx card with an HDMI out, so I'm not sure which one you have. You can do as the previous poster suggested and use the optical or SPDIF out or analogy out. Make sure in your sound card settings you have the correct output.
