Having a few issues at the moment with my new receiver.
I want to watch movies from my pc which is using a ATI HD5700 GPU. However it seems I cannot get 5.1 etc to work so I am trying to get the sound via the optical output on the MOBO which I used in the past with a different setup.
If I plug in the HDMI and assign the audio to come from the optical input I do not get any sound (and set the PC to transmit audio via optical). If however I assign optical to another input I get the full 5.1 signal but I then cannot connect the HDMI cable without loosing the full 5.1.
So in summary why can i not have Optical audio and HDMI video on my amp?
