AMD HDMI sound

Recommended Posts

So my brother-in-law just bought this amp http://au.yamaha.com/en/products/audio-vis...s-amps/rx-v471/

 

Its a yamaha rx-v471 and considering that its a pretty decent little amp I thought that we should stop using the xfi gamer that was in the HTPC and go ATI hmi for direct bit streaming. The sound is GREAT. There are no two ways about it, it has a very pure and crystal clear sound.

 

BUT there are a couple of things that we miss that I just cant figure out how to get working. Mostly the ability to upmix stereo sound sources to 5.1 or stereo surround (stereo across the front and rear speakers). There are options in the amp but these affect all types of input on this channel not just the stereo choices so I was hoping that there would be some kind of software choice to force the option in stereo only?

Fairly sure it has to be done at the amps end man. I've got the RX-V371 and thats how I have to do it.
