I’m trying to get 5.1 audio out of my PC to my 5.1 soundbar using my video card. When I connect to the soundbar using the HDMI port of my video card (soundbar has HDMI in) it detects 6 channels no problem.
However, when I connect to my soundbar using the CAC-1070 DisplayPort to HDMI adapter, it only detects 2 channels. The website clearly states “Supporting up to 8 channels of audio, the adapter provides Ultra High Definition digital audio and video.”
Tested multiple cables and they all work when it’s HDMI>HDMI, but no dice when using the CAC-1070. The optical input on the soundbar is already taken up by the optical out of my TV.
What do you think the problem is? Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
