is there any simple device that take HDMI and decode/convert the digital audio (decode Dolby TruHD, DTS HD Mater or ....) to 5.1 analog
will be nice to have it if possible to (HDMI digital Video/Audio) --> HDMI digital Video + 5.1 Analog audio ;-)
I have already a setup and I do not want to mess with it, I just need such device (decoder)
(you can write be back in Norwegian if like I just need any help you can offer)

So what you really need is an external DAC with hdmi-in, and wich supports 5.1 audio?

Thanks for the reply
well the current setup
Projector with DVI as an input
Creative GigaWorks G550W 5.1 (5.1 analog inputs)
(Dell XPS 1330 that has HDMI) & (MAC Pro early 2008 that has DVI) for playing multimedia
(Thinking of buying/adding XBox 360 or/and any other Device that plays HD 1080p ts/mkv/mov files from my File server)
old stuff that are already in place:
Technics speackers (per)
Technics SL-PG 490
Sony MDS JE530
so what I need is a "basic DAC" whith HDMI input and 5.1 output (5.1 Audio Pre Amp) to be connected to my Creative GigaWorks G550W

The way I see it the easiest way to solve this is to buy a BD-player with internal decoder and analog outputs.Samsung UE65HU7505
Yamaha CX-A5100, NAD 208, Onkyo PA-MC5501 SVS AS-EQ1, Samsung BD-H5900 sonefri
2xSVS STS-01 front, 2xSVS SCS-01 senter, 4xSVS SBS-01 surround, 2xSVS PC-2000 sub, 4xDynavoice Magic FX-4 atmos.

Thank you for your help :-)
dear twelve, I allready was in contact with the company and this device dose not meet my needs
in an earlier email AllAboutAdapters.com wrote me
this HDMI audio decoder can not decode Dolby TruHD or DTS HD Mater audio into analog sound. It can only decode PCM type HDMI audio.
This HDMI digital to analog audio converter supports decoding uncompressed digital LPCM 7.1, 5.1 or 2 channels and passing the compressed digital Bitstream (Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD Master Audio) through HDMI input and output ports.
dear Gurba, I think you are right, but Still I have some of my Old HD-DVDs backups and they are not bluray!
the solutions I see now are
1- Get the device that twelve posted the link to and buy any cheap receiver that can decode (Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD Master Audio) to PCM, something like the Onkyo TX-SR507B or Yamaha RX-V465B, it will decode to PCM then takes the PCM and convert it to analog.
2- Get a receiver that has pre amp audio output!
now the second solution is the best I think (if the price is not that much higher than the 1st solution).
don't you agree?

Where is the one for the center? I can see for the fronts, rear and sub

This is a 5.1-receiver with Surround Back-preouts, so that you can expand to 7.1 with a power-amplifier

dear Galnes I did not think about the center ... lol sorry my mistake
so if I want to go with better choices (more expensive)
then I have
Onkyo TX-SR806 and YAMAHA RX-V765
which one of these 2 are better? for me The RX-V765 is cheaper, but dose the quality of TX-SR806 much better (?) that justifies the extra cost?
the thing I like about Yamaha, it does support more Audio Codecs
I'm new to this but I'm learning ;-)

If I get it correctly, you use the PC, and want HDMI sound to be converted to analog.
Why not just use a normal soundcard? Asus Xonar cards will give you great surround from every format, spescially their HDMI 1.3 cards, which also for later use can add sound to a HDMI signal.
If your going to use other equipment, a cheap HDMI 1.3 receiver with preout would work, or just take the Gigaworks speakers and hook them up to the receiver. It will sound even better.

but now I solve it :-)
I bought Yamaha RXV765B and I dumped my Older Reciver
things work so good so far :-)
I have some minor issue with my projector but I will wait for my new PS3 :-)
and see how it will preform :-)
Thank you every one for the help :-)
I will post some photos later to show you my setup ;-)
