I have my 5.1 HT system and I wanted to hook it up with my computer. My video card has a HDMI port and I connected it to my AVR 2600 receiver, however only two channels have sound. After some study I concluded that the limit is in video card which only generates two channel sound. Then I noticed that I have the S/P DIF interface on my audio card. The questions are:
1. Can I use S/P DIF to render 5.1 channel sounds if the source is equipped so?
2. AVR 2600 should have a S/P DIF interface, right? I took a look at the back panel, still couldn't determine that;
3. is S/P DIF some kind of old tech, is it alright to use it in my case?
Thanks a lot,
