Optical Audio

Recommended Posts

It seems there is a problem with Windows 7! If you have multi channel audio setup through the control panel to anything other than 2 channel and use Windows Media Center... it will crash. This appears to be a known bug and yet we have seen no hints of a patch.

Last I checked in Windows 8, when I couldn't get proper Dolby Digital sound from my AV receiver, I had to resetup in the Control Panel and it went fine. From what i recall (i used optical and now I use coax digital) it was the same setting, and it sounded like transparent. I don't try to let Windows figure out multi-channel audio, I instead select something that sound more like "transparent" or "passthrough" digital audio. My AV receiver is way better at doing that decoding anyways.
