[SOLVED] How do I setup 5.1ch over HDMI with 6950 connected to TV?

I'm having trouble setting up Surround over HDMI... Using the latest CCC 11.6 drivers. Just got a new Samsung 3DTV and 5.1 home theater system.

The home theater system is connected via a Monster Optical (S/PDIF) Cable to the tv, and set as D.IN. My pc is connected to the tv via a 20' 3D and DTS / Surround Certified cable.

I am only getting stereo (2 channel) sound over hdmi. I don't even have the option when I click configure.


Using sig rig. Now how can I get 5.1 over hdmi is the big question. confused.gif

Definitely a software issue. - clean installed drivers, installed only amd drivers, tried only realtek drivers. none give me 5.1 over hdmi. So maybe it's not a software issue after all.

EDIT: Problem is SOLVED! Just get a better HTIB that has HDMI in or use a two way optical adapter. Plugin the Optical from your PC -> Adapter -> Receiver and TV -> Adapter -> Receiver. 5.1 over hdmi probably won't work because your TV is down-streaming it to 2CH. In my case I just got a better HTIB. I chose the Samsung HW-C560S system, just under $400 (I live in Canada) Good luck! thumb.gif

connect your PC to the receiver (IN), connect the receiver to your TV (via hdmi OUT)
connecting the PC to your TV, thats why your only getting stereo 2.0
the receiver is decoding nothing

I can't do that. I'm using the Samsung 5.1 DVD Home Theater system, it only has HDMI out, Optical IN.

Something else I came up with is; Connecting the PC to the TV via HDMI for video and using a 3.5mm Audio (male-male) cable to connect the PC to TV for audio. BUT I WON'T GET SURROUND NOR QUALITY AUDIO.

Does your onboard have digital out?
Run an SPDIF Digital cable from your PC to your reciever.

Set that input to digital with your receiver, then boom you can start playing with your settings.

Set that input to digital.

Yes it does, if i do run a 20' optical cable from the pc to the receiver and set it as D. IN (digital in) I'm only going to get sound from the PC.

The problem is that I have a PS3 hooked up and cable tv (coax), so how do I get the audio from the TV to the receiver? I can't cause the only option for external speaker output is using Optical. Unless, I use a Optical audio splitter ... plug in the optical cable from the pc and from the tv and then plugin the splitter into the receiver. The big question is QUALITY. cause I see cheap-o $5 splitters on eBay that claim to be good.

Beats the purpose of the 6950..
-Integrated HD audio controller
- Output protected high bit rate 7.1 channel surround sound over HDMI with no additional cables
required
- Supports AC-3, AAC, Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio formats

i don't think there's any other way
your 6950 only out puts sound through hdmi and u need video as well (hdmi)
those home theater systems don't come with true receivers
they offer minimalistic amounts of inputs

get a real audio system, then. your tv probably only outputs 2ch PCM. even if it supported surround, you'd only get dd or dts, not dolby truehd or dts hd master audio like you could if you used hdmi.

I'm was thinking it downscales it to 2ch too... It does PCM and DD. But, if i use my ps3 -> hdmi (audio and video) -> tv -> monster optical -> receiver, i get 5.1 surround, and even the audio setup on the ps3 detects 5.1... ninja.gif

However, that being said the only option I have when I use the PC is PCM. While, It shows me PCM and DD (dolby digital selected) when I use the ps3 with HDMI.

Definitely some funny stuff with the AMD Card. Supports AC-3, AAC, Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio formats Doesn't mention Dolby Digital anywhere on the site.

I'm thinking of trading it for a GTX 570 or add cash and get a 580. Especially since I'm already having trouble with audio and 3D gaming / video on the AMD card.
