Hello everybody. I am having trouble setting up virtual surround sound with my xonar d1 card and my beyerdynamic dt 770 pro 80 ohm headphones. I am currently running windows 8, have the beta windows 8 sound card drivers installed on my system and it seems to be working fine for everything except virtual surround sound. I have tried going into the control panel and changing settings, but when i configure my headphones, it says its already setup for 7.1. In the xonar audio center, I have it set to 8 channels, headphones, PCM, and dolby headphone (pictures below), but after doing the windows surround sound test I know I'm still only getting 2.1.
I tried switching from PCM to dolby digital live, but once I switch no sound works at all. The mixer will show sound coming in but I can hear nothing in my headphones. I tried plugging my headphones into the spdif out port but that did not work with any settings.
It seems like I need the spdif to get a digital signal, so maybe that's why dolby digital isn't working. I have a toslink 3.5 adapter that the instructions say to use for spdif out, but I can't plug my headphones into it. I'm not sure if I need to buy something else to get this system working or not. If anyone can help me figure out what im doing wrong, id greatly appreciate it.
**Edit** OK, so I was going through my uncles basement helping him move some stuff out and I found a receiver he said I could have. It's a Yamaha r-v1103 (http://usa.yamaha.com/products/audio-visual/av-receiver...) so i guess i just buy an optical cable from amazon, use the adapter my sound card came with to plug it into the spdif port, and I should be good to go?
