Remember i have two different PCs hooked up to my receiver. When i refer to PC i am only talking about my optical from my main rig to my receiver. HTPC is well my htpc through hdmi.
Then it is definitely the receiver has some sort of DSP enabled.

Use the receiver to upmix the 2 channel soundtracks to 5.1. It will do a better job than most soundcards.
