What signal does your receiver report receiving from your pc?

I get full 5.1 playback on my htpc connected to my receiver via HDMI however i will look at the settings to see if there was anything extra i had to do

Here are my settings for XBMC
System > Settings > Audio output
audio output - HDMI (for me)
Speaker Configuration - 5.1 (manually set it to that)
Dolby Digital capable receiver - enabled (mine is)
DTS capable receiver - enabled (mine is)
Audio output Device - WASAPI: ATI HDMI Output (what the pc primary audio output to xbmc)

For my PC connected via optical from onboard
Sound -> Digital Audio -> Supported Formats
DTs audio - enabled
Dolby Digital - enabled
Here I am: here I remain
