No 5.1 sound for digital output

October 11Hits:1

My past mobo (asus) die, so I replaced with a 760GM-P23.  I have a LG home theater with S/PDIF input and before I was able to watch my riped movies with 5.1 bypass sound.  I get a S/PDIF bracket for this mobo and upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 8.1.  I only have stereo sound over S/PDIF. I installed latest realtek drivers and the configure button (speakers) is greyed.  The Realtek Audio Manager doesn't show me any settings for speakers on the digital interface.  Is this a motherboard issue ? a driver issue ? as I said, it Works just fine in my previous build... What can I do ?

Robbo69,
Unfortunately the GD580's were aimed specifically at the console gaming community and not at PC audio. That is why it does not have 5. analog inputs on the decoder box. Are you still able to return the speakers? If so I have a combination of speaker set and decoder box that will improve both the speaker quality and your abilities all the while keeping the cost fairly close to the retail cost of the GD580's. If you return the GD580's in exchange for a set to T5400 - http://us.creative.com/products/prod...5&product=5077
and a DDTS-00 - http://us.creative.com/products/prod...6&product=9468
You will gain almost double the wattage of the GD580's plus the ability to connect a 6. or 7. speaker system to the DDTS-00 at a later date. The current retails put this at about $30 dollars more...much less that what an Audigy 2 ZS would cost (although that is also worth considering).
That Audigy 2 ZS does not contain a real time AC3 encoder as right now there are factors with these kinds of encoders that make it a poor match with a high quality sound card (the real time encoding process is lossy and can severely limit the audio quality of the bit stream. With onboard cards this is not as large a problem since the source signal is of a lower quality).
