Hi all, My HPTC sound comes via the SPIDIF and all my MKV's play fine in DTS etc. My problem is I only get stereo when I lauch Pc games and the games show they are in Dolby.

Cheers

Which OS are you using?

What Sound Card?

Its worth checking in the Control Panel on default audio output options.

Does the game/s support output via a list of devices available?

Exaclty how is the sound been sent to your amp is it via spdif / Hdmi or independant Spdif?

Im Using Windows 7
Its built in to the Motherboard: ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO MOBO.

Will check the control panel later

yes its being sent via SPDIF. Digital does display on the amp when playing MKV's, BBC HD, DVD's and BLU Rays

Well I have just had a try myself.

I installed a game on my HTPC.

But DVD's HD DVD's Blu-Rays and BBC HD all play in surround modes.
