I know this post has come up countless times, but I've tried every solution to no avail.

I have a Mid-2010 Mini. I had 5.1 running correctly previously using Toslink (without messing with any setting), but after moving I got rid my old sound system. Long story short, I just picked up an Onkyo HTS-3500 5.1 system.

I hooked it up initially with Toslink, and cannot get multi-channel output on the Midi setup. I hooked up an HDMI cable to the receiver and was able to get the multi-channel output to show up on the Midi Setup, but I did not have any sound going to center or rear speakers. Also, there was a strange echo coming from the speakers while playing a DVD (which is not there using the Toslink). All the speakers do work, as I've gotten sound to come out with my iphone hooked up to the USB in the receiver.

So, I switched back to Toslink, but still no multi-channel. Please offer suggestions. I've messed with setting in the DVD, VLC, and in Perian. I'm willing to use whatever cord are necessary. I'll download whatever, I simply want all my speakers to work.
