Im not an audiophile perse, but I want the audio to be at least 5.1.
If its just going to be stero audio I need to figure out another way to interface my PC to my reciever.
I think you are missing the point...
IF your PC CAN output 5.1 Then the HDMI cable WILL carry 5.1
IF you PC CANNOT output 5.1 then it wont...
All the best Brett
