I have tried everything. I have the right connecter (3.5m to rca) and have a single coax lead running to the amp (Sony STRDB930). The problem is I'm only getting stereo. I have ticked digital output only everywhere that i can find it in XP, I have set the speakers to 5.1 I have set the dvd software to the digital out setting and things still don't work. I only get front left and right. If I can't solve this soon I'm getting a M-audio 7.1 with RCA out from overclockers. No more poncing around with 3.5m jack converters. Anyone got this setup running ok? Any help much appreciated.
