Can't get audio receiver to pick up 5.1 channel

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a built in realtek alc889 sound card, I can't seem to get it to work properly. I try to play my video camera hd video which has a 5.1 channel mic. I use AC3filter to enable the S/PDIF. When I play the video, it keeps getting stuck and the receiver emmits a white noise sort of sound. When I turn off the setting from AC3, it plays fine but I don't get the 5.1 channel.

I have installed the latest driver for the sound card and it still does not work, no 5.1 channel shown on my receiver. So what can I do?

Do you have an HDMI on your reciever? You could just skip your soundcard and run your video card into your receiver hdmi and get the sound there.

This. I run HDMI to my receiver and it works great.

Make sure "Disallow PCM output in SPDIF mode" is not checked in the SPDIF tab
Make sure "Use AC3 Encoder" is checked in the SPDIF tab
Make sure "Use SPDIF" is checked in Main tab
