    Receiver used for PC is dieing. Need a replacement solution.

    5.1 output from a sound card to the receiver via optical can only be done using compressed encoding like DDL or DTS. HDMI Audio is a full uncompressed output without any analog distortions. What you may lose is the audio 'enhancements' done by Creative software, but that's been outdated for like...

    Receiver used for PC is dieing. Need a replacement solution.

    What is asked is a silly thing. HDMI Audio thru a video card results in a 2nd monitor. So there are options to deal with that 1) Duplicate it with the primary display. Would not be good as the refresh rate is limited by what the receiver can do, usually 60Hz. 2) Get a second monitor for...

    Need to wipe the drives in a few PC's and laptops

    There hasn't been 'low level format' for a very long time, like 30+ years. Writing all zeros on a modern hard drive is enough to clear data without any chance of recovery (except the remapped bad sectors that can no longer be written no or read from w/o special hardware).

    Sixteen Years Old, $1.7 Million in Revenue: Max Hits It Big as a Pandemic Reseller

    To do that you need to show the expenses. I do not expect a 16-year old to realize that he needs to do that, before spending it all on stupid shit and receiving 600k bill from IRS next year.

    Sixteen Years Old, $1.7 Million in Revenue: Max Hits It Big as a Pandemic Reseller

    for that you need to file taxes properly, otherwise IRS gets a report from Paypal with $1.7M income and asks for their $600k cut.
