[HELP] How to output DD TrueHD / DTS MA

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys! Since the 5850 supports AC-3, AAC, Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio formats, does that mean that when i connect my 5850 to my z5500 via HDMI-Optical it will output Dolby TrueHD and DTS MA when i watch bluray movies that supports it?

Im just wondering if this is possible. My initial plan is to buy a soundcard that can decode the DD TrueHD /DTS MA and connect it via a analog cable to my z5500. Is this the only way? Or even this set-up is not possible to output DD TrueHD/DTS MAIm not getting a receiver because I already have a set-up with it and its too expensive to buy one again.

Hope someone could help.

You can only get dts-hd ma and dolby truehd thru hdmi, toslink or analog will not work(not enough bandwidth), you can keep your gpu and buy an hdmi receiver that will decode hd audio plus speakers, you don't need a separate soundcard.
