You can't send any of the HD audio formats over optical. You would need HDMI for that.

That still wouldn't help you... Forget about optical / spdif / your old soundcard.

What you need is a video card that natively supports 8 channel LPCM.

This article would be a good one to read.

ps. This still won't light up the TrueHD lights on your amp, but you would be getting full TrueHD audio.

You have a pretty decent sound card there. Have you considered just going straight into the 7.1 analogue in on your 606?

i use the analogue output for my headphones which i need to keep pluged in this is my setup at the momet using the middle screen so all i really need for the moment is just the audio



i need to have the headphones and hd out so might look into a new sound card soon if thats the only option
