I've been having some trouble getting digital audio from my audigy 2 zs card to my receiver in digital audio. I'm actually using the wire you mentioned in the link your original post (nice post btw), but i only get two channels. Do I lose some of the signal somehow as the wire splits into L/R channels?
Perhaps I should give up and switch to analog signal since my receiver does accept 5.1 analog input. Just would need to splice off the signal for the fronts so that I could send one chunk to the receiver and another to the desktop speakers (so the receiver doesn't need to be on all the time)
