Surroundsound support (Dolby ATMOS / true-hd) with dock and DisplayPort-Adapter

2016-07-30, 9:25 AM

Good morning, afternoon, evening or whatever time it is in your country. :)


I'm (still) using my x220 as my main computer with series 3 docking-stations.

I'd like to use it also as a media player. Unfortunately the dock has no HDMI-Output. So I have to use a DisplayPort to HDMI-Adapter to connect it to my AV-Receiver.

Even though I have sources with Dolby atmos or true-hd sound I can't play them directly. My receiver only receives PCM signals, no native digital sound information.


Is there any way to play / pass-through digital audio formats directly to the AVR?


Best regards
