    5.1 Surround Sound using MS WiDI V2


    5.1 sound not available via Miracast Microsoft WiDi Device

    Product: HP Pavilion x360 14-dh0516sa
    Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 64-bit


    Trying to use my new laptop with my living room TV as an extended display. The TV is connected to my AV amplifier with an optical cable SPDIF which operates successfully in 5.1 surround sound when I connect devices with hardwired HDMI. I have an Android TV box that can output 5.1 audio - I test it using a file called "Big Bucks Bunny", a test cartoon that supports all sorts of audio and video outputs that you use to fine tune Kodi - so I know 5.1 works hooked up to the TV and from there into the AV amp. However in Android, Netflix only supports 2.0 audio using the Google Play app.

    PC version of Netflix does support 5.1 audio playback but only when I plug it into the HDMI connection to the TV. When I switch to the MS WiDi V2 adaptor I can only get 2.0 sound out of it. Some googling has shown that 5.1 used to be supported in earlier Intel driver versions of the wireless display adaptor but since support stopped for the Intel drivers and Windows updates switched to more standard Miracast format it now only works in 2.0. The specs on the WiDi V2 suggest it is capable of supporting 5.1 audio but the drivers in Windows 10 do not support it.

    Is there any way of changing to drivers that do support 5.1 audio over wireless or am I trailing an HDMI lead if I want higher quality sound with Netflix?

    Razer Announces the Tiamat 7.1 V2 Flagship Surround-Sound Headset

    Razer, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced two new headsets: Razer Tiamat 7.1 V2 and Razer Tiamat 2.2 V2. The Razer Tiamat 7.1 V2 is an analog, true 7.1 surround sound PC gaming headset featuring 10 discrete drivers, five per ear cup, creating an immersive soundstage, essential for pinpoint positional audio and deep gaming immersion. Each ear cup contains a 40 mm subwoofer, 30 mm front (L/R) and center drivers and 20 mm rear and side surround drivers, working together to create highly accurate directional audio.

    Included with the Razer Tiamat 7.1 V2 is a completely new Audio Control Unit, which allows gamers to set the volume of each audio channel as well as toggle between true 7.1 surround sound and 2.0 stereo audio. The Audio Control Unit also has a pass-through feature, allowing gamers with external desktop speaker setups to switch between their Razer Tiamat 7.1 V2 and their speakers at the press of a button.

    For in-game communication, the Razer Tiamat 7.1 V2 is equipped with a unidirectional digital boom microphone which rotates alongside the ear cup when not in use and delivers crisp, natural voice in the heat of battle.

    "Today's games use positional audio extensively, so being able to hear which direction footsteps or shots are coming from is crucial to winning," says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. "With five drivers per ear-cup, the Razer Tiamat 7.1 V2 gives gamers pinpoint audio accuracy whether they're playing intense FPS matches or just want to lose themselves in massive soundscapes to bring their games to life."

    The Razer Tiamat 7.1 V2 joins the ever-growing family of Powered by Razer Chroma devices, with 16.8 million color options and effects available on the ear cups and Audio Control Unit. Owners of other Razer Chroma enabled devices can sync their Razer Tiamat 7.1 V2 with their existing setup or customize each product individually through Razer Synapse.

    Razer Tiamat 2.2 V2
    The Razer Tiamat 2.2 V2, exclusively featuring two additional 50 mm subwoofer drivers per ear cup, gives gamers maximum bass impact with crisp, clear audio.

    Good surround sound headset

    I know you say you're not that guy, but stepping into the $250+ range really brings a change in build quality that might have you never having to buy another set. Otherwise, getting 6 speakers with decent sound in a headset is hard, and that's what you are asking for, and I have no suggestions, but just a bump up the list. *Stick Out Tongue 5.1 Surround Sound using MS WiDI V2 :p
