I have read that in windows you need atleast 8 channels to send hd audio formats despite the receiver able to decode the formats. The SR313 is a 5.1 receiver so how do i trick windows into thinking that its a 8 channel device?

Someone with same issue but the answer is outdated :

Edit : After grueling months, and putting my problem everywhere I have found a solution on linustechtips forums
What you can try is editing EDID using CRU. I don't have 5.1 receiver to test so I can't confirm whether it'll work, but I was able to dumb my receiver down from 7.1 to 5.1.
Upon opening CRU select your AVR then select CTA-861 on one of extension blocks and click Edit. On audio formats click edit and try adding ones that support 8 channels (e.g. DTS-HD, Dolby True HD, EAC3, LPCM). Then edit speaker setup and click 7.1 at the bottom.
Restart your PC and hope it'll work out.
