Here's my setup : I have 2 desktop computers, LCD TV and a 5.1 Speakers first desktop is for multimedia and the second is for games .. the multimedia desktop have my media center and it is conected to the 5.1 speakers and to the TV via HDMI. Here's the question : i want to send the output audio of the gaming desktop to the 5.1 Speakers through the multimedia desktop. any ideas ? Thanks
Any reason why it has to go through the htpc and not to your receiver directly?
If not, you could run a clone display (at a very small res) from the hdmi port of your gaming pc (assuming it has one) directly to the receiver. And yes, a small clone display may hurt your performance a little.
i don't have a receiver i have a Creative INSPIRE T6160 Speakers which is connected directly to the multimedia desktop computer, so if want to transfer the audio to the speakers with out unplugging it, The audio stream must go through the computer...
