AVR bitstreaming not working

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Sup all, just got an Onkyo 6300 and set it all up nicely. I was hoping for some plug & play magic to happen once I hooked the HDMI to the 6970 but nope, that'd just be too easy. Apparently you only have to select this and your good to go, except for the part where for me it just says that it's not plugged in.

Catalyst center shows the receiver as a display and for what it's worth shows there is a connection made. I don't know what to make of it since this is my first time with surround, my HDTV is hooked via a DVI/HDMI if that could lead to a problem.

I really have no idea what software or settings need to be changed. I'd greatly appreciate any help you give so I can watch and play stuff in 7.1.

What GPU is it? I'm pretty sure you'll need a HDMI/HDMI cable hooked up to the ATI HDMI adapter plugged into your GPU, unless it has a HDMI on the GPU (either way you need a HDMI/HDMI cable), and in control panel>sound set the HDMI device as default.

Go to the Windows Sound Control Panel and set it as the active device.

It's a 6970 from Sapphire and it has an HDMI port which I am using to connect to the AVR. I do see the AMD HDMI Output show up but it says it's not plugged in for some reason. It could be that I'm not outputting a video signal to the Onkyo in Windows, and I believe I won't get any audio that way without it. The receiver shows up in CCC as a display but it won't let me duplicate or extend the display. Maybe my setup is wrong.

Right now my HDTV is hooked via HDMI to DVI and another HDMI from the receiver to the HDMI port on the GPU. I would normally also have a monitor hooked via DVI-D in the mix but I'm in the middle of ordering one at the moment. Does the receiver have to be connected to a display in order for this to work?

Make sure you have the optional ati hdmi audio drivers installed. Also check out http://www.overclock.net/t/1028415/how-to-hdmi-sound-to-receiver-ati-hdmi

I've not tried it with multiple monitors, it sounds like the audio could be linked to the HDTV's connection (I'm guessing it's the primary display) and the driver is telling you it's not connected because it's a DVI at the GPU's end. Have you tried with the HDTV as primary display connected via HDMI (or DVI>HDMI with the ATI adapter)?

I got it working with the HDMI from the gpu going into a free input on the AVR then another between the TV and an HDMI out.

Though I'm curious if I'll still get surround as it is once I get my new monitor that will need a DVI-D connection.
