Goal: Have PC feed audio through AVR
Background: Can anyone instruct me how to configure the following (in order to hear/play music from the internet, PC DVD player, etcetera) through my AVR?
PC: Acer Aspire ZS600 (OS: Windows 8, Realtek HD Audio 22.214.171.12480 video card).
AVR: Marantz SR8500 (THX surround EX, DTS Surround, DTS, Neo6,DTS Extreme Surround, DTS 96/24, Dolby Digital EX, Prologic, SRS Circular Surround, HDCD formats. I believe that the DTS 96/24 is 16 bit with 44.1 KHZ sampling).
I also have an HDMI adapter for the Marantz and attempted to route HDMI out from the PC the an HDMI in on the AVR to no avail.
To those that may reply, my deepest gratitude!!
