My System Specs

Default separate hdmi sound

I have a 775,core2 duo pc with a gfx card with HDMI that i have hooked up to my lcd TV, problem is my TV does not have left and right sound outputs. Next to running a pin to rca splitter to run sound to my reciever from the PC is there a way to separate the HDMI sound and send it to my reciever? From what i read that signal is/can be encrypted. Maybe a dongle or a inexpensive box that is hdmi compatible with rca outs?

Umm what?

Why not run the HDMI from the gfx card to the receiver and then run a hdmi from receiver to tv?

Your question is very hard to understand and try to figure out.

SIMPLE if TV has earphone jack


Note set to low volume other wise you burn out speakers due to over modulation

You get one of these:

Plug it into the onboard of your motherboard and run it straight into the receive.

Use the HDMI strictly for video to your tv.

Yup have a few of them. I guessing that separating audio from a HDMI cable is more of a hassle than it's worth. Did some googling on the idea and getting no definitive answers. The pc audio split to 2 rca I have known about for ever. So please stop posting that suggestion. But thanx for your input.

back to OP, what your asking is not audio coming from PC but TV to amp/recvr looking for theater sound? dolby non stereo sound Coaxial Dolby AC3 DTS Digital

question what amp/recvr and model, also tv needs to support AC3 DTS Digital

TVs have never and still don't as far as I know decode ANY digital signal to something like AC3 or the likes. TVs do stereo and video only. Its the receive which does the decoding of the audio signal and only to speakers not to another device.
