I'm thinking about moving my PC into the living room to use it as a HTPC. I have a Creative Titanium now, but it does have any digital outputs. Does anybody have any recommendations for HTPC sound cards?
Hmm... Ok well it doesn't do that very well. LF, center, and LR come out of the LF speaker. All others come out of the sub. Something's messed up. What kind of sound would I get straight from the motherboard? It's a EVGA 780i. Thanks for the help by the way.Can't convert 2ch into 5 channel dedicated, so your AVR will just use dolby pro-logic to look at phase and such to spread the sound to 5 channels.
Ok I'll do that. And what sort of sound quality should I expect?What AVR do you have? What surround Field are you using?
If you mobo has analog outs and your AVR has analog 5.1 inputs, use those.
