Why home theatre wont play music with full joint stereo support while movies work in 5.1, both hdmi

headphone jack broken on computer. computer hooked into receiver hdmi, receiver feeds hdmi video to tv. audio goes to speakers. dvds and movies in 5.1 work perfect but no matter what I use for music, itunes, winamp, even vlc player, music always limited to front L and R and center channels. doesnt matter what field its in, plii plii z neo6, surround speakers wont even get simulated surround- same as front speakers- I know a lot of music is only stereo. I have a lot of albums that are joint stereo though. these again no matter what only push Fr L C R. the only way i've found to enjoy the full quality of my joint stereo records is too use ipod touch connected to receiver via bluetooth. ipod>bluetooth receiver plugged into stereo receiver 3.5mm 'portable' input. this all joint stereo work great, and regular stereo is stretched to surround speakers. once I heard joint stereo actually heard it out of my setup I cant go back. haha. but comin from the hdmi from computer that movies work fine in full 5.1, joint stereo should work!!!! help please! windows 7 btw
