HTPC Audio Connection Help

Recommended Posts


I'm currently setting up a HTPC with the following setup:

HTPC: Gigabyte G41 motherboard with SPDIF-in and HDMI/DVI

HDTV with SPDIF-out and HDMI/DVI

Analog 5.1 speakers

The setup will have the following connections:

1) speakers <--analog audio-- HTPC <--digital audio-- HDTV


When the HTPC is playing movies/music/etc, it will output digitally to the HDTV, and analog audio through the sound card. It should work with no problem.

The issue I forsee is when I watch TV; is it possible to get the audio passthrough to the HTPC, then have the HTPC decode DD/DTS from the TV, to the 5.1 speakers?
