    I have a sound blaster Audigy with an Optical Digital I/O card that i just got. I have the optical cable running from SPDIF out, to SPDIF in on my reciever. In the AudioHQ (in control panel) i have the Digital Output Sampling Rate at 48KHz (was 96KHz, but was too hight for the optical cable i think). Here is where the main problem is, under the speaker option (where you can test all your speakers with front right, center, front left... etc.) When i run that i can only hear front right and front left. Why? i have no idea what i am doing wrong. is there a certian driver i need to install? the speakers are the S4 MidiLand 7100 Plus. Thanks for any help.

    well, make sure you have the right speakers selected, of course... 5 or 5.1 in your case. what happens when you select, say, 4 speakers? does the sound still just come out of the front 2?

    also, what happens if you use the analog connections... can you get all 5 to work?

    the picture did not come up so i am not sure what you are talking about. when i do select 2 speakers it works on the same front right and front left. if i select 4, same thing front right and frong left. i really have no idea why this is. audigy driver problem maybe? but then wouldn't audio be messed up?

    i have a PCI128 with a coaxial digital cable hook up and as far as i know you can't get 4, 5 or 5.1 with it, only DTS or DD sound out.

    for multi speaker you need analog outputs,
