How To: Computer HDMI Sound to Receiver (ATI HDMI) - Page 6

post #51 of 203
My graphic card (EVGA 660 TI) has 2 HDMI ports does anyone know if everything will work fine if I plug the receiver and my monitor into it via HDMI? And does the graphic card need to have PAP (Protected Audio Path) for it to work?

Denon 1913 Receiver
EVGA 660 TI
Samsung monitor (it is HDCP compliant)

I'm trying to avoid AidingPlace's problem. If I can't use a HDMI connection with the monitor then I won't be able to play Blu Rays.

All works well with the exception of the odd program launching on the 2nd monitor which isn't there (maddening when it happens!!!).

This set me thinking why can't I use the Amp as a pass through and use HDMI from 5850 to Amp and then back to the monitor. That also seems to work except the max res I am offered is 1680x1050 ............................. the Dell runs 1900x1200. The Yamaha offers a 4k pass through so I would also think it's up to the job

An HDMI cable from 5850 to monitor outputs at 1900x1200. Not sure on the quality of either cable so anyone know whether the quality of HDMI might be the problem?

If you're on just 1 monitor, just do "duplicate these displays". It makes your receiver and monitor as one and will fix that issue. If you have a 2nd monitor, you can do it to that as well.

Go HDMI from your video card into your HDMI in on the back of the receiver, whatever one you want, then HDMI out into your monitor and it should work just fine.

Thanks for the help, I re-read Aidan's post and he wanted the resolution 1900X1200. My monitor doesn't go up that high so I don't think I'll run into the problem he's having.


Noob question - Connect the monitor (HDMI) to the graphic card right and not to the receiver?

Connect one hdmi end to your card and the one into an hdmi IN port. Then do the same hdmi out to your monitor

I was wondering if room correction was available when using the HDMI output. Does the AMD driver have a feature to adjust the levels and equalization of the speakers (like Realtek does)? Or could one use the receiver's microphone calibration feature instead of doing it through the PC?

I used the receiver calibration on mine.

Good thread here, I'm thinking of picking up a Pioneer SC 1222k http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882117412
and connecting using my sapphire 7950's hdmi
Monitors are AOC 23" Hdmi and a Lenovo 21"dvi
Speakers are Dell ADA 995 5.1 they are individually

If I understand right I'll connect HDMI from gpu in to receiver and HDMI out from receiver to AOC and either a HDMI/DVI cable or HDMI cable plus a DVI adapter for the Lenovo
Edit: It seems the Receiver has only one hdmi out so how to connect the 2nd monitor? or just DVI straight to 2nd monitor from gpu?


Now Do I connect the individual speakers (ie Front, center, surround and sub) to the receiver's preouts using an adapter

or

Do I connect front, surr, and center to the powered sub and then connect the sub's mini jacks (using a mini jack to rca adapter) to the receiver's preouts? In this case it'd be just like connecting the speakers to the sound card on the pc minus the adapter. I hope that made sense

Any help would be most appreciated

HDMI out is only for using video feed from your desktop to a monitor or TV. Just 1 HDMI in will give the receiver audio. Then plug in your monitor in DVI, and I dunno if it's fixed nowdays or not but dual DVI and using HDMI didn't work at one point, you had to use a display port and if you didnt' have that you'd need an active display port to DVI converter.

The speakers you want to use are computer speakers. Those don't work with home audio equipment like this and you wouldn't benefit from it either as those speakers are garbage.

you'll need speakers that use speaker wire that look like this on the back of the speaker



or have analog L/R like in this one



So in reality, you're going to be spending extra money on new speakers and a new sub.

You don't ACTUALLY need a receiver that expensive unless you got a beefy as hell speaker set to work with. I use a Yamaha RX467 that cost me 250ish on sale

http://www.amazon.com/electronics/dp/B003CP0K8W


if you need a whole new setup on the cheap and don't want stellar sound (I'm just referencing polk audio because that's who I like for speakers)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882290066

or look through these

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=polk+audio&N=-1&isNodeId=1

Other brands are good too like Klipsch, Infinity, Yamaha, don't ever waste money on bose.
