  1. connecting 5.1 receiver to pc via hdmi without second screen


    i have connected my 5.1 receiver to my pc via hdmi so i have the best possible audio formats , this results in the problem that my pc thinks that there is a second screen , so when i open a file etc. , it sometimes opens in this second screen wich i cant see. i can disable this second screen and still have low quality stereo audio via my receiver , but the 5.1 surround does not work , how to fix this ?

    :)

    how to connect a second screen?

    Hi,

    You can connect your device to a second screen using a VGA, HDMI, DVI, or DisplayPort cable. For us to provide the best solution possible to your concern, we need additional information:

    • How are you connecting your device to a second screen?
    • Did you use either of the cables mentioned above?
    • What kind of second screen are you referring to? Is it a projector or a second monitor?

    We'll wait for your response.

  3. Project on second screen not working

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your concern on Microsoft Answer Community.

    As you have already did some troubleshooting steps to fix this issue, but to have a better clarity on this issue , we need few information.

    1. How you are projecting the second monitor from the surface, whether it’s extended/duplicated?
    2. How the physical hard connection made, USB-C, HDMI, or DisplayPort?

    Meanwhile we want you to refer

    article, which might help you to resolve the issue.

    We await your response.

    connecting 5.1 receiver to pc via hdmi without second screen

    My HDMI connection to my second monitor no longer works


    The problem has returned--sort of. Here is the sequence of steps I followed:

    1. No display on my second monitor, despite the fact that the HDMI cable was connecting my computer to the monitor.

    2. Tried changing the *Start-P settings repeatedly. Nothing. When I set the connection to "extend," my computer clearly thinks that there is a second monitor (all the Windows icons go there--as I have it set to my #1 display), but it is completely dark.

    3. Tried multiple restarts. Nothing.

    4. Tried connecting it to my older laptop as described above. Worked perfectly.

    5. Plugged it back into my current laptop. Works just fine now.

    So clearly it's some sort of software or setting issue. Can anyone tell me how to fix this if it comes up again without having to resort to using my old laptop, in case I don't have it around?
