I just built the PC and connected it to jvc rx-d702 b through hdmi on ati hd 5850. In windows 7 i am configuring sound in in sound panel. I enabled ati hdmi sound in there but i only get 5.1 speaker configuration. I have the newest drivers from ati website.


Does anyone know how to enable 7.1 sound in windows 7. I want to test it before i go ahead with other htpc configurations.


Thanks in advance

If you're bitstreaming, I don't think it makes a difference if it is set to 5.1 or 7.1. I could be wrong but I have an Asus HDAV 1.3 and my output device is set as spdif. When I play a BD with 7.1, I get 7.1 from my receiver. Same for a 5.1 source.

Setting up bit streaming and the bluray playback is next on my to do list.
I was just wondering how to make the PC correctly recognize the receiver. I want to play games and music on it too.

You should set up bitstreaming first. Once that is working, everything else should work as well.


Once I had bitsreaming of DTS-HD, TruehHD, DD, and DTS working in TMT3, everything else worked fine. I got DD 5.1 in MCE and 2.1 in iTunes without further changes. My receiver lights up according to the signal it is receiving (stereo, 5.1, 7.1) even though Win7 says I have 5.1 speakers.


If you are connecting via hdmi to your receiver and then to your tv, your video card should be picking up the edid from your receiver. Is that happening?

This is what i get. I am using a projector and jvc receiver is set up with 7 speakers. no sub.

I am not sure how to read it but it does not say anything about speakers configuration here.

does that tell you anything?

sorry for the delay. both my work and home computer need fixing. So I am final back to the HTPC.


My receiver reports multichannel PCM. thats about all I can tell. It also shows channel icon for the channels it is receiving.


I went through the guide and installed shark decoder and checked pass through. Is there anything else i need to set. I am still reading the guides. I downloaded 7.1 channel wav file and it only plays in 5.

I also modified the edid. I changed number of channels only, nothing else. It now reports 8 channels (7.1) but the receiver only displays 5 and when i do sound test from windows it only plays 5 speakers. no side ones. i am not sure if i set the frequencies correctly or channels. this is my updated edid.


any ideas whats wrong?
