http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hello, Thanks in advance for help. I'm kind of a noob but I'm learning. I'm trying to get 5.1 surround sound from Fedora 17 86_64. It's connected to Denon A/V receiver via Displayport --> HDMI adapter --> HDMI cable. I know the adapter is fine as the setup works in Windows partition. I can't use Win7 partition for this due to firewall. The idea is to use HP laptop as media server with VLC (I'm not married to VLC though if you have suggestions). H/W is built-in Intel video and audio. Phonon says I have Pulseaudio and the only back-end listed is GStreamer. Also, before you read all t (HowTos)
