Windows 7: Laptop to TV (through HDMI) to surround, but no 5.1

22 Jan 2010   #11


ok so lemme get this straight cuz i dont seem to be getting 5.1 audio anymore but i though i was getting it once before. I have an audigy advanced hd soundcard and i swore when i hooked my tv out to my soundcard line in all 5 computer speakers were working while watching cable tv no all the sudden i get only 2 channel audio. But when i plug the speakers into my adapter rca on the other into my tv i hear all 5 speakers on movies hbo etc im stumped i liked the fact i could control the cable sound threw the comp seemed to get louder too. I belive the speaker set i had before might have been what got 5.1 but that only put out dobly not true 5.1 suround so when i pressed the speaker button on that system i could hear everything kick in would go from 2 channel to all speakers now nothing im stumped??? Do i need daniel_k drivers too?? if so do they make any for the audigy value ? that along with advanced mb seemed to work idk but i have audigy advanced hd os idk what i would do i have herd of this digital i/o box would that work???
