Any ideas how to get the Live! card in use?

Also, I only get the option of 2 speakers or SPDIF and no 5.1 option.

I don't know what other info you might need so just let me know.

Thanks if anyone can help.

So, at the moment, your SBLive is not working at all for playing DVDs, is that correct?

Does it work fine for playing music, CD-ROMs etc?

I noticed the same thing. Thier is no 5.1 option.

I just use SPDIF which ends up putting all my speakers in use. I don't know what it is exactly but i think it means it just use whatever connections are plugged directly into the hardware.
