Hello guys, I just acquired after 20 years of wanting one, a 5.1 Sony Home Theater, and god it sounds fantastic.
Already tried PS3,PS4,XO,X360 using optical audio directly from consoles or coaxial from TV, and succesfully hear 5.1 using DTS or DD(AC3).
Thing is, I wanted to try old games from Win98SE that support 5.1 on it and I just noticed that can't get 5.1 from coax or optical from SBLive/Audigy2/CMI8738/AurealAdvantage/Realtek650/etc. The only option I got is using my Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe using coax and SoundStorm, but that motherboard is problematic (already had many repairs). I cant seem to figure it out how to output Dolby Digital (AC3) o DTS from ANY card from Win98SE except SoundStorm.
What are my options? Can anyone enlighten me?
