    please help!

    sat here on a sat night with my htpc pushing out a hdmi signal to my shiny panny 50pz80b, and it wants to put sound through to it too. noooo. can't get it to send one one way, the other the other.

    I want the sound to go out via my digital optical out surround sound. don't want to watch films through the tv speakers

    Really want to watch it tonight! Argh!

    set up is

    AMD Athlon Dual Core 5050e 2.6ghz
    ASUS M3A78-EM 780G Socket AM2+ onboard graphics 8 channel audio mATX
    sound seems to be Realtek
    Graphics is ATI

    Heeeelp me! Need to watch 300 with the folks or I'm going to have to talk to them for the whole evening! gulp :devil:


    Any ideas please ppl?

    Hi Stripee go to the sound device and look at the setting and set to optical out.
    Had the same thing with my set up,all so you might have 2 sets of drivers HD audio or something like that, it's just finding the right setting.
    Hop that might help :thumbsup:
