Audio confusion (1 Viewer)

OK. I have all the components in place to have surround from my HTPC.

I recently acquired the following items:

40" LCD TV (not using the audio, though it is connected via HDMI)
Onkyo TX-SR507 5.1/7.1 receiver
gaggle of HDMI 1.3a cables
ASUS M3N78 mainboard (nVidia 8300 with HDMI output)
Windows Vista Home Basic

I'm having problems getting any surround out of it. Playing anything through VLC or PowerDVD 9 Corporate, let alone MediaPortal, the receiver just stays in either STEREO or TV Logic mode -- Doesn't matter if it's a DVD, an .iso of a DVD, or any number of videos I've obtained/created that are supposed to have at least a 5.1 mode.

What do I need in order to enable surround out of my HTPC? I've read so many posts here, and tried the things in them, that I may have screwed up my Windows install and might have to start over... ;)

If you need any more specifics on my hardware/setup, please ask. :D

Thanks for all your help!
