Having upgraded to Windows 8 I no longer have 5.1 as an available sound mode in my Windows 8 sound control panel. The only option available is 2.0 stereo.

Everything else on the system is working fine.

The onboard sound card is disabled in the BIOS and the ATI HD5450 is the only sound hardware available.

I connect my PC to a Sony STR1000 AVR via HDMI and the amp is connected to a Sony VPL HW80 Projector.

Any ideas...?

Did you do a fresh install or did the upgrade in place to Win8?  There have been a lot of different bugs being reported with CCC and Win8 so far, so I wouldn't be suprised if this was a new one.  Just bear in mind that Win8 was only officially released this week and there has been a lot of talk that Microsoft (MS) was releasing it without it being fully baked so there are a lot of issues that they intend to fix after the release.....which means a lot of patches and most likely a SP will be out there before Win8 will feel and work the way they expect it to (like Vista?). 

If you find that you can reproduce this issue reliably please feel free to submit a ticket to AMD so that it may be addressed and included in a future version release of CCC.

I have the same problem with my Radeon HD 4550 in Win 8 Pro.

Installed the latest 12.6 Win 8 Legacy pack but same problem.

Yes i did an upgrade but most of it was installed with microsoft default drivers anyway. Downloaded CCC 12.6 manually but only stereo sound on the HDMI.

Hope this is solved soon cause i dont wanna go back to win 7.
