It uses the GT 330M GPU video card that also outputs HD audio. I literally as of 20 minutes updated the drivers to the latest and greatest out there.
I can output DTS, DD and everything in between.
My sound is set to 5.1 surround, 24/192, the whole nine yards
My receiver is a Pioneer Elite VSX 23 TXH - it shows up on the front display PCM Direct and shows the front, center, right, surrounds and subs as if they are being utilized. However it is outputting in stereo with a LFE track.
My video player is Corel WinDVD BD and it shows it is outputting in Dolby Tru HD
I am flat out stumped at this point, I really dont know what else to do. I am running HDMI 1.3 everywhere...
My soundcard has been calibrated by a mic as well as my receiver.
