Here problem continues, the SIH issue is resolved but it keeps waking for the freaking Windows Update.
Anybody know the exact settings to disable all Windows updates so I can do it manually once or twice per month?
Update - after reinstalling connector many times I was able to see the subject PC and set up a backup.
However now it fails at 1% with manual backup.
Guess I have to look for similar problems and solutions.
Is there a quick/low impact way to reinstall the connector after I upgrade WIn10 from one version to a later one, without having to deregister the machine on the server so the installer will run as well as whatever other steps are necessary? I understand that the upgrade process disables the connector or at least the lights out part of it because my LO client connector is dead now. I'd appreciate if somebody can fill me in on the minimal steps I need to do to get lights out running again after upgrading between win10 versions.
I apologize if this is answered in another thread. I did search the forums before posting, and I hope I didn't just miss the answer elsewhere.
I recently completed a Windows 10 server/HTPC build using the "Building a Windows 10 Home Server" book. I am not able to get 5.1 surround sound streamed to my Denon AV receiver. I have configured the speaker setup in Windows to 5.1 surround, but when I test the speakers, the rear surround speakers sound plays on the front L&R speakers (as well as the normal L&R sound). Also, the AV receiver display indicates that the signal is Stereo. When I play a TV channel, that I know uses HD audio, using Plex Media Player, the AV receiver shows Stereo and PCM, even though I have bitstreaming turned on in the Plex Player. Everything I play from the HTPC is stuck on Stereo!
In the past, I have been able to get multi-channel input on the AV receiver from the HTPC, but somehow I broke it - don't know how. I have tried reinstalling the audio driver, but this has not helped. I have carefully reviewed the book chapter on configuring Windows audio, but when I get to the step of testing the speakers, the surround channel doesn't play on the surround speakers. Other AV receiver inputs (CATV, BD, Internet radio, etc,) work perfectly. The problem is only with the HTPC input, so I think that the AV receiver configuration is OK. Can anyone help me figure out how to fix this in Windows?
