I see you need a http://us.store.creative.com/Sound-Blaster-Digital-IO-Module/M/B002DS2IRA.htm to get that from this sound card.
Hello, I'm new to this forum (first time I post, but been reading for a long time).
I recently bought a Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi Titanium sound card and later I decided to buy a Yamaha YHT-294 sound system. The problem is that, if I try to connect the sound via the optical cable to the receiver, I have a few issues: mostly, if the DTS or Dolby configs are running, I can't listen to music (it just doesn't play music at all and the program collapses), and if I try to set up the 5.1 system without those codecs, I don't get any music either. I've tried setting that up as the default connection, and nothing. When I tried playing blu-ray movies, it wouldn't work at all, the movie would not even play.
I also have a GTX 480 and a LCD screen with HDMI so now I'm transferring the sound to the receiver thru the HDMI cable and the video, but it's a bit sad to not be able to use the optical connection (I practically don't even use the sound card, and when I used it on a regular stereo connection the sound was very good). My configuration is:
nForce 790i Ultra SLI,
Intel Q8200 (I think) 2.33ghz (quad core)
Creative Sound Blaster X-FI titanium
LG blu ray reader
Windows 7 ultimate x64 bits
8 gigs RAM DDR3
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me on this matter!
