If it is a Surround Receiver with HDMI in, it probably expects the signals to 
be the order
1 Left
2 Right
3 Centre
5 L Surround
6 R Surround

It should take uncompressed audio.

You possibly need to find the right setting on the receiver. It is sometimes 
described as Direct.

Sounds like a problem with Windows.
