But when I have it hooked up through optical, it gives me all these different options, like pro logic II, cst.ek A, B, and C, etc. But all of them sound like poo compared to hdmi.
sounds like somebody is afraid of having options. You should go buy a mac.


but in seriousness, Why don't you list your options and we can help you pick the best one.

I really just want to know how to make my blacks darker on the middle screen, and my whites brighter on the other two screens.

if that's what you want, adjust the brightness/contrast settings on the monitors. If you can't get it to work that way, then why not try to take the advice about using optical. Generally in my experience, optical sounds better anyway.

yea, but your reciever clearly isn't doing a good job transmitting the HDMI single so why would you want to use it? When you can just as easiely use an optical cable.

Now my comment about getting a mac is serious. You don't like having options. Go buy a mac. You won't have options.

I didn't just drop about $2,000 into a gaming computer at the age of 15 if I really wanted a mac...

Then take our advice and use the optical cable and use the settings. Those settings are there because the onboard puts out a better audio signal then your video card. those are added features.

If you don't want options you buy a mac, if you want options, you buy a PC. If you don't want a mac, you learn more about what you have so you can use it properly.

If you say so, I guess I could try optical again.

If you want your monitor to work right, then use optical and use the settings, if you want the ease of not having options on your reciever, use the hdmi and deal with the messed up monitor. simple as that.
