I have a Dell Studio 15, a Sony Bravia KLV-40S550A with multiple HDMI Inputs, and a Sony Home theater DAV - DZ790K with a single HDMI output port., and component and video ports. I have connected the home theater to the TV through Video 1 (set in output mode) and the HDMI cable.
When i connect the Laptop to the TV through the HDMI cable, i get good audio and video from the TV, but I am unable to get the 5.1 output from the home theater system to play.
How do i get the audio output from my laptop to play on the home theater system?

If your TV has an audio out port (can't seem to find specs on short notice), connect that to the Sony Home Theater DAV.
