    This p.m I have plugged the digital out from my soundblaster live 5.1 to my Sony A.V amp 930.The sp/dif out seems to be working fine but I cannot get dolby digital only pro-logic ( through the digital cable). I am using power dvd.Is there any reason why a combo of soundbaster live 5.1 and power dvd would not output a dolby digital bitstream?? Help !! Thanks.

    make sure the spidf is enabled in the audio setup!!!
    and also enable the sound card to output digital in the properties section

    done that, I can get digital sound, but just a stereo signal ( pro-logic ), I can't get a dolby digital bitstream ??? I plugged a dvd player into my amp to see if that was the problem and got the discrete ac3 signal no probs.:confused: :confused: :confused:
