PC -> TV -> Receiver = No 5.1 Audio?
I am currently having a small issue with my PC. Whenever I connect my Xbox to my TV, the TV allows 5.1 audio to pass through it to my receiver via HDMI ARC. I believe this is because the Xbox ignores the HDMI profile that is sent to it from the TV and pumps through 5.1 anyway.
However, when I connect up my Gaming PC for a night on the couch with a controller, 5.1 is not an option from my PC. (See pic).
I know most people will most likely be thinking, just plug it into the receiver, but the receiver is not an analogue image pass-through to the TV, it adds a few ms delay, which makes it almost impossible to play a FPS shooter.
So when I plug it directly into the TV and put it into game mode, the delay is extremely shorter.
So does anyone know any way to allow the TV to advertise that it can actually pass-through 5.1 audio to my receiver?
I do have a universal remote that CAN be programmed to open the engineering menu, if there is a setting in there, that will do it.
My TV is a 2017 Model 65 inch 4K HDR LED TV
Any help at all will be highly appreciated
