    hi ive got one of these I think....may just be a dg rather than a dgx,was in my system for about a week after which I swapped it out for a fatality card,the dg/dgx would not do 5.1 over optical with windows 7 and I couldn't connect via the analogue outs.its pci-e boxed,bought in jan this year from yoyo tech in London.Its £15 delivered and I will send you a copy of the invoice as I need to keep the original for warranty on my graphics card.im also open to trade if you have anything to offer:smashin:

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply buddy. It would defiantly need to be the DGX as that's the PCI-E version. The DG is the PCI version and as I said I don't have any of those slots on my mobo.

    When you say it wouldn't do 5.1 over optical, does that mean its faulty? Do you have a photo of the card at all?

    Cheers

    pretty sure its PCI-E as it fits in the tiny slot between my graphics card slots,im not at home ATM but I will get the wife to send me a pic in the morning.Apologies it will do 5.1 with movies but not with games (specifically Skyrim) which was what it was bought for.the card visually looks identical to the link in your original post.

    Do you know if there is any specific reason why the 5.1 wouldn't work? Everything else is working ok, ie the Dolby headphone amp?

    Cheers

    Thanks buddy.

    I think I might have to go down the "buy new" route as I'm not having much luck on here. I was watching 2 on ebay but missed them ending. They sold for £20 odd anyway and a new one is only £26 on Amazon.

    Just had a quick look on google and it seems that model might be out of my price range, I'm only after one of the cheaper models :)

    No worries. From my understanding, The DX has 7.1 and better quality components. The DGX has 5.1 and a built in amp for headphone use. I've actually got sitting here right now, a DX, a DG and a DGX but looking to get the D2X.

    Is USB any option? I've been struggeling with the same 5.1 issue as well and I have finally found a cheap (in my opinion), good quality sound card that solved it. The best part is that it is fully USB powered and features real-time Dolby Digital live encoding so you can play games etc in full surround sound.

    Link: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Asus-Xonaru3-Mobile-USB-Soundcard/dp/B004ZI5E1S/

    Worked wonders for me using my surround headset with S/PDIF. :thumbsup:

    edit: just realised the DGX is £26.97, still it does not support realtime DDL or DTS encoding so no surround sound in games. Not sure if that matters to you though.
