The highs are not crisp , its sounding like old radio ...and there's less bass.When you say its flat, do you mean lacking bass?
Yes i am using hdmi directly to AVR. Yes Its connected with NVidia Graphics card GROFORCE 1650 -> hdmi out --> hdmi cable --> AVRAs u mentioned here, i believe u are using hdmi directly to AVR !!.
I was giving suggestion assuming that your graphics card is installed in your PC and through HDMI cable it is connected to your AVR.Is not that case in your setup ?
My PC setup:Here u mentioned that u have purchased gpu!!!
am i missing something from your chain of components ?
Let us know your pc setup and how are u using ?

No Sound card installed
My video is playing very cleanly , only thing is the sound is flat.
When i was watching the movie with same AVR settings with my old pc (which has dedicated sound card) it was sounding very good.
Not sure Sound card does improve overall sound quality here...
