Problem outputting surround sound from PC via HDMI – Microsoft Community

Click here to Download


The non-PC portion of the setup works fine – the TV outputs 5. That didn’t do it. Going into the Playback tab of the Sound control panel, I am able to see Stereo and a “Dolby Atmos for home theater” option, but selecting the latter does not actually result in any surround sound – it’s still stereo.

Was this reply helpful? Yes No. Sorry this didn’t help. Thanks for your feedback. It depends on whether your PC manufacturer HP paid for dolby digital or dts for pre-recorded movies or dolby digital live or dts connect for live game encoding. Years ago, your previous PC came with a dvd burner which also came with a software dvd player and that allowed you to play 5. Microsoft was also generous during the Windows 7 era to give out free software dvd player.

Now it is the netflix app in windows 10 that is paying for dolby digital plus so that you can hear 5. Thanks for the reply. Shouldn’t the data going through the HDMI cable be bit-for-bit identical to whatever audio is encoded in the source file, making it the job of the device the cable is connected to to do the 5. Adding to the confusion, here is what the Sound control panel is displaying about the device the cable is connected to.

It is capping the max channels at 2 despite indicating below that that it supports surround formats? BUT it is the software on your computer to decrypt the encrypted copyrighted material in the first place. For years, people have pc’s that came with dvd burners. Microsoft also provided a free software dvd player in Windows 7. That software dvd player decrypted the encrypted dvd movie and then send the compressed 5. Netflix has movies with 5. The netflix app for windows 10 supports 5. So test your computer with your hdmi tv and hdmi receiver by playing a netflix 5.

If you are unable to get 5. That’s essentially what I’m doing by trying to play 5. Same thing, right? Thanks for following up. If the answer is that this isn’t hardware-capable of outputting 5.

In reply to Kelev77’s post on May 7, Sure it is the job of your tv or your av receiver to decode the compressed 5. In reply to JosephT71’s post on May 8, Hi Kelev77, Got it, thanks.

Also, are you using the built-in sound card? Looking forward to your reply. In reply to Kelev77’s post on May 8, I don’t know because FLAC is not a format used in consumer electronics.

It is windowx far bigger headache to try and get the video to work right when putting all inputs in the receiver, and I decided it was time to let the TV handle all video itself.
