Please excuse me ahead of time because I'm a newbie. I'm wondering how i can get digital audio from the NUC through HDMI. I have HDMi hooked up to to the TV and an optical cable hooked up from my TV to receiver. However, whenever I look in Windows 7 sound configurations, it only says 2 channels. I know the receiver can support digital audio 5.1 but I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. All drivers are up to date. Would hooking up a second hdmi cable from the NUC to the receiver help? Please help.
To successfully pass both video and audio through an AV receiver, the cable hookup should be done as in the following diagram.
Be sure you are using HDMI 1.4a cables, which support both video and audio. If you continue to have a problem with audio, please let me know what make/model receiver and TV you are using.
