  1. I Play Hd Movie Files With Ac3 [5.1 Sound] And I Have My Pc Connected To My Home Theatre....

    And When I Play The Movie My Reciever Says Its Playing Pcm 44.1

    And Usually When I Play 5.1 Sound,it Says Dobly Digital

    And Yes I Got The Ac3 Codecs And I Can Recieve 5.1 Sound ..

    I Ran The Test On My Coaxial Out From The Computer Where It Says "test 5.1 Sound" And When I Do That My Reciever Says "dobly Digital" Like Its Supposed To....but Not When I Play Ac3 Movies...

    Can you set your media player to output to SP/DIIF? It could also be that the video your playing doesn't have the 5.1 sound files included.
