I have a k8nsnxp-939 gigabyte mobo with the 8 channel on board audio. i am trying to get it hooked up to my reciever. its a 6.1 channel sony. STR-DE597. when i plug in the digital rca, the reciever only plays sound out of the left and right channels. i know everything is hooked up right and this setup worked fine on my old asus a7n8x board which had 5.1 onboard audio. am i missing something?...any suggestions are appreciated. thanks.

hm, well i think i meant coaxial. i know its a digital signal. yea i have a coaxial cable and run it from the digital sony input to the mobo. are you saying that my mobo doesnt have a coaxial out? it has an optical output too, but those cables are expensive.
Have you tried changing your surround channels on the MOBO from 8channel to 6channel in the computer's speaker settings? Seeing as your sony decoder is 6ch and the mobo 8 ch I'm thinking that might be the cause.
Also try playing around with the UAJ function in the speaker settings, try it both on and off and see if it makes a difference.

Thanks S S, i tried messing with all those settings but no luck. its probably an encoding problem. rattle i think ill take your advice about the sound card. ive been lookin around and that seems to be the best thing. plus, i hate the crappy program that gigabyte comes with for their audio settings, theres no control for anything... welp thanks again
hm, that sound card does not have a coaxial or an optical output. and using the multi-in channel on my reciever is just gay. i dont want 4 eigth inch to rca cables running from my computer to the reciever. i would like something that encodes a dolby digital/DTS signal. now if my mobo should be able to do that, i may have a bad board.
