So now i got all installed… I got the Cambridge Soundworks DTT 3500 Digital 5.1 speakerset. I’ve tried it with SB Live!, SB Live! 5.1, Philips Seismic Edge and now i got myself an Audigy 2 Platinum, so with a Live Drive (or what’s that thing called)
BUT I STILL CAN’T MANAGE TO GET DIGITAL SOUND!!! !?
As in… no matter what i try and how i connect everything, when running the test supplied with the drivers, i ONLY get sound for ‘front left’ and ‘front right’. I.e. the test where it produces sound (either voice or noise) from every speaker sequentially. I don’t get any center or rear speaker sound. I can get sound from those when messing around, but as far as I can understand that isn’t dolby digital, but it’s using sound from front channels and converts it to the other ones?
Does ANYBODY know in just a couple of straight steps how to optimally configure and connect? I can use the normal plugs on back of soundcard, I can use optical from the livedrive (speaker control unit got optical in), I can use the SPDIF from livedrive (that one doesn’t give me any sound atm) (speaker unit got SPDIF in as well).
And how to configure the software/speakers in that case? I’m getting tired of this, I don’t understand it!
I hope somebody has a similar system and can help. Or is just more into this than I am… and can help.
If it’s easier to contact me directly, catch me in MSN: email@example.com
Thanks in advance!
