Reciever only playing Left and Right but not center.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I recently bought a Yamaha RX-V373 and using a coax cable from my PC i connected it to AV2 on the receiver. My problem is that when I use the speaker it just plays the left and right and no noise from the center, even on the receiver the left and right are activated but no center icon. I have updated my realtek driver and looked in the windows sound option and there is only 2 channel options. I dont know where else to look but i know its not the center because I used the test option through my receiver and it worked. Hope you guys can help.

All I can think of, make sure your receiver is set to 5.1.

sound cards/onboard usually only output stereo via coax or toslink unless you are playing a movie or something and elect to allow ac3/dts pass-thru

The digital output setting on the soundcard is always going to say 2 channel if I remember correctly but it relies on the receiver to decode it to whatever format it is outputing. For example if you are listening to music it will always just be stereo unless you force some kind of synthetic mix on it. When watching tv shows through WMC my receiver will switch to whatever the program is outputting for sound. Some commercials are in stereo, some are in surround. However my Realtec settings just say stereo. I can't test all the speakers unless I'm in WMC.
