just tried connecting pc to receiver den to hdtv via hdmi and it was a success.
this shows tat is is not hdmi module fault.
have just tried Dolby Digital Live but i cant seem to get it to 5.1,audio only comes out from front left and right.
when i disable Dolby Digital Live and use receiver's Dolby PLII Movie,all speaker have audio.
i cant seem to select Dolby PLII Movie when Dolby Digital Live is enabled
