Audio receiver only allowing stereo in win 7

Q: Audio receiver only allowing stereo in win 7

Win 7 hooked with HDMI to STR-DG1000 audio receiver. Windows detects equipment and installs microsoft "High definition audio device" driver. Go to configure speakers and only two channel stereo is available. Tried installing soundcard drivers and video card drivers, but HDMI port defaults to Microsoft driver. Does this mean my soundcard doesn't allow anything but stereo over HDMI?

Here is my situation. I have 5.1 surround sound speakers connected to my pc. I decided it would be nice to be able to run the ps3 through the surround sound for blu-rays and gaming without having to buy a whole new surround sound system. The setup that I have now sounds great for stuff on my pc. However, my pc didn't have an optical audio input so I got a usb device with optical audio in. Here is the problem that I'm having. I can get the sound to play through the speakers using vlc but there is quite a bit of latency. I've looked into using asio4all to try and eliminate the latency problem but I can't find a program that will let me use asio while directly playing the sound from my optical audio input. I'm wondering if anyone knows a way to either eliminate the latency in vlc or a program that I could use to directly play the input either without lag or using asio to try and eliminate it. Anyone have any ideas?

Hmmm, I would probably look for an audio card with a digital optical input and bypass the USB conversion.

I know there are several similar problems about not getting 5.1 sound out of a computer, but none seemed to help me figure out my problem. I have an ASUS Desktop PC CM6850 with an nVidia GeForce GT 530 graphics card. I have the computer connected to my RCA 2906 5.1 surround sound receiver input via HDMI cable, and the receiver HDMI out connected to my LCD TV. In my playback devices, I am only seeing my TV (even though it's not directly connected), which only has the option of configuring the sound to 2 channels. I've tried installing drivers from nVidia, rebooting, plugging into different HDMI inputs on the receiver, and and flipping through the surround settings on my receiver.

For the life of me, I can't get my computer to recognize the fact that the receiver is connected to it, and not a tv with stereo speakers. I've tried contacting RCA, but they haven't responded yet. I don't know if it's my computer or the receiver, but I've gotten 5.1 sound through the receiver from a different source, so I know it's not the speakers. If anyone knows why this is happening, that would be great. I would hate to think I've wasted my money on something that should have easily worked.

A:Windows only allowing 2 channels to RCA2906 Receiver

The computer doesn't know. All it knows is that there is an HDMI cable connected and it assumes it's a TV that is connected to the HDMI port.

I just purchased the program called Cool Edit Pro, and wish to record my old records onto CD with my CD Burner. I am using an older Onkyo Stereo Receiver, and professional turntable, Polk Audio Speakers. However, I cannot correctly hook up the receiver to be able to record and play from Cool Edit. I hooked up the receiver on the EPS Main Connector with RCA Phono Plugs, but the RCA Plugs don't really fit into the Sound Card Ports on the back of my Compaq Presario. I also tried connecting to one of the tape ports on the receiver, didn't work at all. When connected to the EPS, I can pick up the radio tuner, it plays fine. But, it seems nothing is being read by my computer. Do I have the wrong connectors? What ports should I use? HELP! 8^)

I have no audio, but when I go to (right-click sound icon in tray) --> Playback Devices --> Playback tab --> right click "Speakers / Headphones Realtek High Definition Audio" --> Configure, then in Speaker Setup dialog:
* If I select Quadraphonic in the "Audio channels" list, I hear sound for the RL (rear-left) and RR (rear-right) speakers, with my stereo speakers plugged into the black jack in back. I cannot get sound when testing the regular L and R speakers in Quadraphonic mode; I've tried all 5 jacks.
* When I select Stereo, then clicking L or R speaker icon to test results in no sound, again no matter which of the 5 jacks i plug my stereo speakers into.
* So the only way I have sound is in Quadraphonic mode, but only for the back speakers. Therefore I cannot hear regular stereo output from applications, such as Youtube in Chrome.
This seems like a bug, or a highly unintuitive aspect of Realtek's or Dell's software at best. Any ideas on how to solve? (Beside buying full surround sound speakers)

Laptop: Sager NP9150
Receiver: Sony STR-K850P
Audio: Realtek HD
Connection: SPD/F Optical Cabe
Listening mode: AFD Auto - runs everything as 2.1

Issue: when I know I'm utilizing a 5.1 source, the receiver only auto-detects 5.1 sound from DVD movies. Sources such as Netflix streaming and Steam games do not detect as 5.1.

I've run a few tests and for Netflix, I think the answer is as simple as selecting whatever Dolby flavor I think is applicable (Dolby ProLogic I or II, etc.) That seems to work fine.

For games, I'm less certain. I've read that games do not send 5.1 audio over SPD/F optical. The tests that I've run seem to indicate that in games, when I force a Dolby format with the receiver, it just sends the audio to all the speakers. In movies (DVD or netflix) I can (I think) tell that the individual speakers seem to be doing different things.

So, anyway - I apologize if this is all very confusing.

One thing I've hit on, is that I can use a hacked Realtek HD driver that allows me to force Dolby Digital Live. What is that? How does it work? Right now, it just seems to be muddying the waters.

I recently bought the HP Pavilion dv7-1014ca notebook with Vista x64. I bought it with the intention of setting it up as part of my home entertainment system so that I can watch movies and play computer games on the big screen. I have a projector and 7.1 surround sound set up through my Pioneer VSX-1017TXV-k receiver. Upon trying to connect my notebook to my receiver through HDMI, I found out after much trouble shooting that my receiver does not support audio through an HDMI cable. My notebook does not have an optical out, only HDMI. The biggest problem that I have been running in to is that most work-arounds are not compatible with Vista x64.

Been trying to figure out a problem with HDMI audio out and "not plugged in error"

HW is a motherboard with HD3200 and ALC889A HD with latest drivers.

Using a HDMI cable i get HDMI audio out, but if i switch inputs on the receiver then back HDMI audio is "not plugged in".

changing resolution brings it back as default device.

Tested a backed up vista image with ati 9.04 and realtek hdmi 2.23 drivers and it worked fine changing inputs on the receiver.

The same drivers in win7 did not resolve the issue, so im guessing theres something in win 7 that causes this

A:win7 bug with HDMI audio connected to receiver

if you have an HDMI capable receiver I am going to assume you have at least a 5.1 setup correct? And I am also going to assume that "HW is a motherboard with HD3200" means onbaord HD3200?

If yes then I would suggest using either the coaxial output or optical S/PDIF output to the receiver as you are not reciveing 8 channel LPCM through HDMI.

As to your actual problem I am setup same as you, however I am not having that problem... is video still able to pass through to your TV even in the audio not plugged in state?

Last week my cable provider (Brighthouse) copy protected ALL channels.
Because of this I had to move the computer I was using to record my TV (using the HD HomeRun Prime and transferring the files to my NAS) to the TV I watch it on.
I am using a Sony 7.1 receiver with 3 HDMI inputs (PVR, Blu-Ray & PC) that has relays that switch the output between the inputs and to PASS THRU when turned off.
When the signal is switched (even just turning the receiver off activating PASS THRU), the video card drops the HDMI audio and does not restore it until I log off / log on or disconnect & reconnect the HDMI cable.
The computer is a HP HPE-460Z with a NVIDIA GeForce GT420 video card.

I have another PC (with a dedicated Radeon board) directly connected to a TV that also disconnects the audio if the TV is turned off & back on.

Apparently this is a common problem with dedicated video cards.

The computer I used to play back the TV before had integrated video in the AMD A6 processor (Radeon HD6350D) and left the HDMI audio connected NO MATTER WHAT.

Can anyone recommend a low end (<= $60) video card to replace my NVIDIA card with that they KNOW leaves the audio connected even when turning off/on a surround sound receiver or TV?

Thanks in advance.

A:HDMI Audio Cuts Out Upon Receiver Pass Thru Until Log Off / Log On

I'm not sure what is happening, however, if an HDMI cable is attached Windows will automatically switch the default audio playback device to the HDMI. It sounds like the PCs are detecting an HDMI disconnect and switching to the PC sound (Speakers) as the default audio playback device.

I don't think its a problem with the video cards, although I could be wrong.

BTW, I have Brighthouse too, but I have their DVR for recording.

Hmmm...
What I want to do is to be able to send the audio via analog or digital from my computer to my 70's high power stereo as cleanly as possible. The only problem is that the CPU is 30 feet away from the stereo and there is no way to get them closer. (Pioneer, Mcintosh, Bose, PhaseLinear) 30 feet of preamp wire supresses the high frequencies.

I thought that I saw a wireless that would receive form the CPU, perhaps a network type item. My CPU is a stand alone plugged onto a FiberOptic Eithernet. I would like to add another CPU to the circut though.

Perhaps this thread should be in the Networking forum? All your help will be greatly appreciated.

I run accross this hand shake (wrong term prob but we get it) thing searching this subject and bought a 2011 reciever with 4 HDMI inputs and 1 HDMI out to your TV. Good stuff. ATI's Catalist Control Center see's the new reciever not the TV and that rocks. First test failed Crysis played in Stereo. Test 2 was a bluray and played the master audio 5.1 flawlessly. This must have caused the hand shake because I reopened the game and the "AMD HDMI output" with 5.1 channel output on each. Spread this around as it was to difficult to find. Also note that software has to be modern enough to output 5.1. I use Total Medea Theater 5. I expect any of us with knowledge of this hand shake to post thanks.

I ran a cable from the computer's headphone output jack on the front of the PC to the audio system's RCA input jacks. It works OK but I have to boost the audio levels from the computer's audio slider way up in order for it to sound OK. The problem with this I have to plug in and unplug and adjust the levels every time (when the cable is connected, the PC speakers are muted.) Is there a way to adjust the PC's settings so that a cable connected to the headphone jack DOES NOT mute the speakers AND will play at a predetermined level regardless of where the audio slider is set? (i.e. a constant line-level output.) Thanks!
 

A:Run PC Audio to Stereo System

Not that I know

the RCA inputs are expecting a different type of signal
The headphone output is very low output and headphones are quite high impedance

you can purchase a USB Audio adapter , which would enable you to do what you are after - its the sort of thing DJs use where the channels outputs can be individually controlled and levels set
they are not expensive

Back in the day, most mics sounded awful and your only alternative was usb mics. However, newer motherboards seem to have better onboard mic (less noise) and any old headset will do.

VIA VT1708B 8 -Channel High-Definition Audio CODEC

and its chipset:

In windows xp, audio capture was fine. I primarily use the mic with online gaming and was really happy with how well the onboard sound recorded. Very clean, little noise. In game people said my mic sounded great and tests showed that.

Went to windows 7 recently, everything is great except the mic recording is also capturing what audio output is going on (ie. the game's sound as well)

I played with the nixer settings to death and can't seem to prevent this from happening. All games do it, windows sound recorder, audacity etc.

I noticed there is a stereo mix tab and it has it's own recording volume which I have as muted and its recording level down to zero.

This is with the front mic port but I've tried the back and same thing. This isn't an expensive headset, but again it worked great in xp. If the cables were gone it would be scratchy, not pick up the audio output. But I have a backup of this headset and tried it but the same thing.

Rather than muting the stereo mix device you could try disabling it in recording devices - only thing I can think of as it looks like a driver problem.

I have a Realtek HDA ALC883 audio chip.

I have looked at many posts, and saw that many people with Realtek cards have no 5.1 audio on Windows Vista and 7.

- My Headphones port is also my SPDIF port
- I have internal speakers that switch off whenever something goes into the port
- When I plug in Optical or Headphones, it says Analog Headphones, which is weird because I plugged in Optical and expect Digital..
- Digital is a black circle in my Realtek CPL
- I have no speaker fill option

Any assistance?

A:Realtek - No audio above Stereo 2.0 on Windows 7

Here's a post from Vistax64, it might be of assistance:

I had a whole reply typed out but it seems to have disappeared, strange, anyways I'll try and recall what I said. To get 5.1 sound over spdif (Dolby Digital / DTS) you need to enable exclusive mode on your sound card. Outputting 5.1 sound requires exclusive access for the application outputting the sound. Any other application that tries to produce sound while another application is in exlcusive mode will be denied. 5.1 audio cannot be mixed, it 1 stream only. So to get 5.1 sound you will need something like ac3filter to do the passthrough. PCM audio is 2 channel and can be mixed which is why you only see the stereo option in control panel from your screen shot. Also when you use spdif passthrough (5.1) you will not be able to control the volume through your PC, the receiver will have to do that.

If the content you are playing is only 2 channel you are better off setting your receiver to virtual surround (every receiver calls it something different) and have it simulate 5.1

I have connected my Desktop PC to my audio receiver so I can play music on Itunes and have it heard in several rooms that are wired to my stereo system. Right now I use the 1/8" stereo headphone jack on my computer as the audio out and a Y connector that has 2 RCA males that connect to the receiver. It works, but when I plug into the headphone jack the speakers are muted, and I also have to raise the audio levels way up to get good sound. The problem with this is I need to disconnect that cable AND lower the levels back down when I'm done to resume normal computer operation. I would like to change the settings on the computer so that plugging into the headphone jack DOES NOT mute the speakers... AND be able to set separate levels for the headphone out and the speakers. Can this be done? I have also seen USB-to-RCA cables that seem like they would work, but I'm not sure how to "tell" the computer to send audio out of a particular USB port, and how to set an audio level on that port. Since most DJ's use laptops to play music to their amps, I know this has to be feasible, but I haven't yet found out how. Thanks to anyone who can help!

A cable with a USB plug on one end, RCA plugs on the other end, and without any kind of active electronic circuitry will not work. Analog audio outputs are not part of any USB standard.

Some professional DJ software supports using an external USB based audio controller that has a headphone output. This allows the DJ to pre-listen to music selections with their headphones, while driving their amplifiers with the current music selection from the laptop's built-in headphone jack.

Hello and thank you,

I have an Asus M4A89GTD Pro mobo, winch has on-board "Realtek ALC 892 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC". This is a brand new build.

I'm using a TOSLINK optical cable to connect it to a Samsung HT-TX72 receiver, set up w/ 5.1.

I've downloaded, installed and re-installed the latest Realtek driver -10/18/2011, ver. 6.0.1.6482

When I open the Realtek manager, there are only two tabs: "Digital Output(Optical)" and "Digital Output" - see snip below. Thats all. Every tutorial shows 4 tabs, including "Speakers" - see snip below.

I've spent many hours searching for a solution to a problem no one else seems to have, so perhaps I'm missing something so very basic .

fwiw, I have downloaded the audio driver from ASUS as well, but it links to the same Realtek driver.

Can it be that 5.1 is not available somehow w/ S/PDIF? Seems unlikely.

Please help!


Mobo audio specs from ASUS:

-ALC 892 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC
- BD Audio Layer Content Protection
- Support 192khz/24bit True BD Lossless Sound
- DTS Surround Sensation UltraPC
- Supports Jack-Detection, Multi-Streaming, and Front Panel Jack-Retasking
- Optical S/PDIF Out ports at back I/O
- ASUS Noise Filter

A:No 5.1 option in Realtek HD Audio Mgr - only stereo

The surround sound receiver will decode Dolby Digital or DTS encoded audio to 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound.

There is nothing for Windows to get involved with so there is no control panel for it.

I have been trying to fix this for ages now with no solution. Without beats software installed (IDT High definition sound codec" I cannot access my front panel sound plugs, however, whenever i install IDT drivers, I lose my 5.1 sound and IDT only detects stereo channel (Left and right)  I tried uninstalling and re installing beats driver now several 100's of times, as soon as I install this software, I lose 5.1 and am only able to hear stereo sound even though I tell it to use 5.1.  The problem lies in the fact that the IDT sound codec in control panel only sees 2 channels, left and right.  When i use the microsoft drivers, I can see ALL 7.1 speaker inputs.  Why is it when I use beats software it wont work on computers it was supposedly designed for?  It's been like this since the day I bought this thing.  Computer is great, beats audio blows goats. So no need to try and tell me to reinstall drivers, I have downloaded at leat 10 different versions of this accursed beats audio codec and it all has the same issue.... I lose 5.1 and am stuck with stereo sound only. The basic microsoft drivers see all 8 of my sound channels, IDT/beats only sees 2.  The driver obviously is flawed. It's not my speakers either, I run Logi's z906 5.1's and they sound 100% with the basic microsoft driver, but with IDT/beats, the sound is total garbage.   I will search to see if someone else uses the same audio chip and try thei...

Hola,

I was hoping that some one could help me with recording audio from both the stereo mixer and the mic at the same time. Currently, I have a simple integrated sound card and can only select either the stereo mixer or the mic as a source for recording audio but I would like to be able to record from both at the same time. Would I be able to do this if I bought a PCI sound card (I wouldn't know how to instruct them both to work from separate resources) or is there a simple way I can do this now? I am running win2000 pro.

To be clear, i don't want to use a program to simply merge and align audio, I want to be able to record from two sources at the same time.

Cheers

Hello Guys! Please excuse my english

For the last few days i've been trying to solve my problem,

I'm trying to record Stereo Mix sound, but it just doesn't work, my motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H.

I have enabled it but when I go to settings of the Stereo Mix the volume is "stuck" I can't raise it, it's just stuck on 0.

It worth mentioning that I also have 2 other sound cards, Asus Xonar DG and Focusrite Scarllet 2i2.
When recording the DG Stereo Mix there is a weird buzz in the sound, also I have tried different drivers for the motherboard but still no success.
My headphone feed is via my Focusrite Scarllet 2i2 which also provides my mic singal to the PC. (I don't use the DG anymore it's just laying in my PC ).

So what do you guys think?

A:VIA Audio Stereo Mix doesn't work

I have a recording studio using Sonar X2 Pro and a Roland Octa-Capture, that I use ONLY for recording.

I have basically the same motherboard, except I have a Gigabyte GAZ77X-UD5H.

If you are using the internal (on the motherboard audio), physically uninstall the DG sound card. Two sound cards can conflict and cause problems. Also, disconnect the Focusrite unit (for testing) and only have the VIA audio and then see if the recording works properly.
