I have a Zotac GeForce 560 Ti 2GB. I use Win 7 64bit and have the latest 320.49 GeForce drivers. I have connected my PC to my TV using the following config.

GeForce 560 Ti HDMI out -> Bose Lifestyle V30 -> Samsung TV

I can't seem to get 5.1 surround sound audio through the HDMI out on the graphics card. My Bose Home Theatre recognizes it as PCM 2.0.

It does however recognize my XBox 360 as Dolby Digital 5.1 and gives me surround sound for it but not for my PC.

Any advice?

go down to sound icon in system tray, right click it and select playback devices, highlight the hdmi output and select configure, change it to surround and 192khz 24 or 32bit depending whar your receiver supports.

Thanks for replying but that hasn't helped. Here are screenshots of the problem I face.

I've even re-installed the Nvidia drivers by performing a clean install. Still no luck.

Hi I am having the same issue with my GTX 470 with a similar setup HDMI from back of the card to a receiver to my tv. Did you ever find a solution to this? Please let me know this has been driving me nuts.
