    5.1 Through HDMI Windows 10 Drivers


    Hi all
    I have PC with AMD Ryzen 5 3400g 16 ram running Windows 10 21h1 64 bit.
    My issue is if I use Widows 10 default grafix drivers, 2D and 3D grafix are fine but I can only 2 chanel sound to my AV receiver through HDMI.But if I install AMD adrenalin drivers 5.1 and 7.1 are not grayed out, But I get black screen for a couple of seconds when booting and when watching Youtube? Is their a fix or should I just put up with 2 channel and no black screen or the other? My problem is I have issues with things running at 90% and not 100%

    Thanks

    A lot of black screen mentions on AMD drivers.

    Troubleshoot:

    1) take your AV receiver out of the equation first, install latest AMD driver --- if you still see black screen, then it's AMD driver problem. You have to wait for AMD bug fixes.
    2) sometimes, green screens or grey screens on youtube can be temporary fixed by disabling hardware acceleration in your browser

    AMD paid Dolby licensing fee --- therefore their drivers can do 5.1. Microsoft doesn't pay Dolby --- so no 5.1 audio.
