    So I have my 360 connected via HDMI to my receiver. PS3 is fine, 5.1 Dolby HD and DTS MA.

    The 360 on the other hand is only outputting in 2 channel stereo. Any ideas before I try to find a solution to this?

    Now that I think about it, it was fine the other day. It's not the receiver either.

    Should I just use optical with the 360?

    This is normal. Microsoft disabled 5.1 over HDMI so they could sell their $50 optical adapters. :sad2:

    Got it. For some reason it was on Digital Stereo in the dashboard. I checked that three or four times and 5.1 was selected. Digital Stereo wasn't even there before. Weird.

    sending audio over HDMI overheats the 360
