I’m a bit of an audio tech newbie but here is my problem
First, here are my components/cables/connections.
Surround sound system (7.2, consisting of RP klipsh speakers/center channel, svs sub ect) connected to
DENON AVR-S950H. (Purchased denon because of Zeos recommendations on denon)
PC: gaming PC with an Asus Rampage edition 10 mb(optical out on the integrated sound card and an ati graphics card)
Cables include several hdmi cables and several optical cables.
What I’m trying to do is connect the pc to tv to use as a monitor using my video card hdmi out and get the audio to my receiver ( video card also supports audio pass through) so that I may get HI def surround sound( dts, HD-DTS, DTS HD Master Audio ect ect)
The TV doesn’t support Earc but supports ARC on a limited capacity (refer to this page for specs https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/samsung/q80-q80r-qled)
I have tried many different configurations and cannot seem to get it working. The best I was able to achieve was connecting the tv to receiver using an optical out cable, however this method does not get me atmos and the HD dts only Dolby digital and DTS
I have attempted to draw a diagram on what it is I’m trying to do
| pc |video card|----hdmi out| ---------video------|tv |
----------- ----audio— | receiver |------7.2 speakers system|
Any suggestions would greatly help
Thank you for taking the time
