Perhaps there actually is one that re-routes 5.1 from an external source besides the built in tuner(s), but I have yet to work with one personally.

I assume you are working with an older receiver that does not have HDMI and wish to send along sound from your blu ray player(?) At some point the ARC standard added onto HDMI might help-

We all wish for that.

But for now the setup that works is:

AV source -> HT system -> HDTV

I know folk are trying (and failing) by putting the HT after the HDTV but you have to wonder why they don't try it the other way until there are new units with ARC.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
