OK, I got some help but it is still not working. First problem was that I was using coaxial cable to connect devices. If I understood correctly I need to use toslink to miniplug cable to make 5.1 work - right? I got the cable but still no sound at all. I tried to uninstall everything but no help. If I pull off another end of the optical cable should I see light beam if SB is sending anything. No light. Does anyone know SB drivers that should work with digital connection? What does the text VDM mean - Creative SB Live! series(VDM)?
