I have intel DH55TC board. I have connected my it to Lg home theatre via HDMI, but its only giving 2 channel sound. Where as specifications says this board support 8 channel sound via hdmi
Kanwar4u that's correct, this motherboard supports 8-channel digital audio. So I would recommend you to check if you are using the latest audio driver available for this product.
If you are using the onboard video, please check if you need to update the graphics driver. It is important to use straight connection and the HDMI cable has to be 1.4a.

Operating Systems: Windows 7 (32-bit)*, Windows 7 (64-bit)*, Windows Vista 32*, Windows Vista 64*

Hello, i have installed and updated all my drivers from the links given above by you. I even purchased new HDMI cables prescribed by you but still only two channels are working. Realtek doesn't shows HDMI control, have to check HDMI sounds from windows options, in properties of HDMI control it says max channel supported 2.
Above given details are for Analog audio control. I am using display and audio via HDMI onboard port . According to specifications HDMI port also gives 8 channel sound. Realtek does not support HDMI option. So i ahve to configure sounds from windows option and as i have stated that option is showing that my HDMI port is only giving 2 channel sound.
