Sounds like you want 4.1 sound via the SPDIF. It won't happen.
No soundcards have a complete digital solution for 2/4.1/5.1 output.
EAX is crap anyway. It doesn't work properly and isn't...

Don't take this personally.
Just look at this forum. Its dead not because of people, but becuase there is nothing new techonolgy-wise in the soundcard market. (and 18bit DACs etc are nothing...

Choose any-card. It really doesn't matter that much. You can achieve CD quality 44.1KHz 16bit recording with any el-cheapo soundcard nowadays.
Creative Labs are heartless crooks who provide no...

I'm not the fan of SB but Santacruz offers nothing better. Same digital-out solutions etc just maybe easier drivers.
nForce DD encoder is what I'm hanging out for (for those of us who have DD/DTS...

I went to the creative site to check for driver/liveware updates
I ended up at a notice saying you must buy the CD containing these drivers

No soundcard has a DTS or DD encoder.

You can pass-thru a DD signal to an external decoder or use your analog 5.1 speaker out of your live 5.1

You definitly need that centre speaker. Most voice on DVDs comes from the centre.
The AiW is a good card.

Maybe its a cable from your sound-card to amplifier

You are able to have PC->5 speaker output + PC->TV output
The speaker output will be dual PCM via a 1/4" stereo jack to 2xRCA (or minidin)
Enjoy your new setup ...

Things have changed now....
Before it was not happening to get SPDIF pass-thru for DVDs in W2K.... updates have obviously fixed this
Digital pass-thru only works for DVDs. Games with 4.1/5.1...

Digital out is achieved via dual PCM streams from a stereo 1.4" jack to 2 RCA
The Front digital PCM can be aquired by a MONO 1/4" -> RCA lead (or using 1 of a stereo lead)
And no...you cannot...

Mini-din pin assignments
The digital output of the live value (version 2) is via a stereo 3.5mm (1/4inch) jack which contains 2 PCM digital...

W2K doesn't support SP/DIF out with current Liveware
