Help getting Dolby Digital to work from my PC


Dec 24, 2011
Hey, I have a DVD that supports Dolby Digital.

When I use the DVD with my standalone DVD player and connect it to my Onkyo TX-NR509 receiver the Dolby Digital logo lights up in red.

I also have a DVD player in my Windows 7 PC which is connected via HDMI to my receiver. When I put the DVD in my DVD player on my PC, the Dolby Digital logo does NOT light up on the receiver.

I am using VLC media player 2.2.2 to play the DVD.

What do I need to do to get Dolby Digital to work on my PC?
