I tried many different way to get 7.1 the ultimate goal is getting the HDMI to get digital 7.1 sound.
Any way here is the problem that I am facing.
whenever I tried to use my PC hook with the power amp with HDMI cable then the HDMI to TV. I can never get any image don't know why. Since I don't get any image so I can't test if I have sound or not.
Current setting is using my sound card with optical (which is 5.1 only) and then force that at my power amp to get 7.1 which doesn't work well at all. I also tried to use the analog way but the problem of that is too many cable so I don't really like that set up.
So my goal is trying to get the HDMI method to work. If anyone has that kind of set up and work could you please share? What model of video card, AMP and how you can get that work?
