HDMI audio using home theater receiver

MissedDeception
 Share

So, I am trying to set up my home theater for surround sound using HDMI connection, I have the HDMI plugged in from the ARC port in the receiver into my GTX 1060, but the receiver is not being detected as plugged in on my playback list. How can i fix this??

Going to need more information.  Receiver model?  Is the receiver in turn connected to a TV for display?  Does the audio/video still play if you manually select the input on the receiver?

HDMI is an audio passthrough, I believe your receiver has to have a video output displayed for the audio to actually pass through.  So GPU -> Receiver -> TV to get sound to produce out of the receiver channel you have it hooked to.

Ah I see, is there some type of dongle or spliter I can use to run my monitor through the receiver then?

I think it depends on your TV/Monitor because the receiver you have is not an set up as a passthrough (from the little I understand).  Reading the manual online tells me that if your TV can support Audio Passthrough however this should work.  You should have your PC HDMI cable hooked to TV (and that you have the PC set to Audio Out via HDMI), then have an optical audio out (or stereo out) ports from your TV connected into the receiver to get the sound to play through the 5.1 system.

Ah, I see. My only problem is that both my monitors I am currently using do not support an audio connection. I was thinking about using a 2 input 1 output HDMI switcher? Would this work?

TBH Im not sure, you would have to research or wait for another to answer - since you are using an HTPC setup, I think a sound card would also work since you are using monitors and not TVs and have the soundcard provide the sound (get suitable cable connections with whatever sound card you would choose) to the blu ray receiver.  I THINK that would work - Im a shadetree AV guy though so I would research more if I were you first before purchasing a card or HDMI splitter

That HDMI port on the Sony system is an output not an input, hence it isn't detected, as the ports on your GPU are also outputs. The ARC functionality just allows the connected device to send audio back to the receiver, but it'll still need a proper connection (i.e. from an output to an input).

If your PC has an optical out you can try connecting that to the optical in on your unit.

I agree, ill have to get a sound card with an optical out. Any good sound cards you can recommend that is not too expensive?

What slots do you have open that you want to use?  PCI, PCIEx1?  I like ASUS stuff, could probably find cheaper if you search around (Ebay, etc) - both of these look to have an optical audio out.
