Okay so I have a soundbar (which supports 24 bit/96khz) connected to my pc via HDMI, but in the control panel, it is only willing to output 16 bit max audio to the soundbar. It thinks the soundbar is a monitor, and gives max 6 channel support, but my actual monitor which is also connected via hdmi is allowed 24 bit audio (at 2 channels)?? Even my cheap pc speakers connected via 3.5mm will let me choose 24 bit audio. I'm just wandering if there's a remedy to this because it's beyond me why it isn't working. I know this sounds fanatical but I do have access to 24 bit audio so I'd just like to make use of my hardware capabilities.

Many thanks in advance :)
