how do u get the 5.1 surround sound working through the optical spdif ????
just built a new pc today, installed windows 7 etc, everything went fine and dandy, until i hooked up my 5.1 system and tried to get 5.1 whilst watching a movie!! i can only get 2.1!!
in the soundmax vol utility there is nothing to change to 5.1, under setup theres just a room with a tv and the 2 front speakers witch i can click to test sound!
in control panel/sound/sound ive got the spdif connection set to default, but the configure button on the bottom left is greyed out and im assuming i need to be in there to change output to 5.1 but i cant get in there to change out????
running windows 7 32bit
installed l8est bios and sound driver from asus site today
its driving me NUTS
thx in advance and hi all
