Not really sure where to post this, but I think it's a software problem so here goes:
- Cyberlink PowerDVD 10 MkII Trial Version
- Windows 7 Ulitmate 64bit
I've just built a new HTPC system (spec) and I can't get any sound out of the digital optical output (toslink/spdif) when playing Bluray. If I change the audio properties in PowerDVD to output stereo via HDMI, the sound comes out of the TV and the PC (via headphone socket) OK, but I can't get anything out of the digital 7.1 connection. The amp is a Denon AVC-A1SE (:D) and I've plugged the optical cable into the socket that the DVD player used to be connected to and worked fine.
I've updated to the latest Realtek audio drivers etc. and checked the PowerDVD compatibility with my audio chipset (ALC888-GR); this wasn't specifically listed, but did fall in between some of the other chipsets; does this mean that the chipset is not supported, or is there something else going on?
Any thoughts or ideas appreciated.
