Recently I've bought my new PC and it has an onboard soundcard, a Realtek one.
I also have a Creative Isnpire 5700 System and I'm not able to make'em work properly. :sigh:
I mean that I bough a coaxial RCA wire to take advantage of the digital coaxial input the speaker system has, but I only have stereo output.

It should be working perfectly, but I don't have digital 5.1 sound, only stereo. :upset:
I suppose i also can use the optical input of the inspire 5700 system but, damn!

Thank you in advance :)
(and excuse me for my bad English :grin:)

Most integrated Realtek audio solutions have a package that gets installed with the driver when first installed.
You should be able to access this audio package (in the form of a control panel) through either the taskbar, or the Control panel.
It contains various settings including gain, balance, output settings etc.

All the settings are correct (I suppose) :sigh:
The digital output is enabled, 6 channel output, I checked everything at the BIOS, Everything is plugged in perfectly (i also did the speaker test that the Inspire have on them) and everything is perfect... :eek:
IT SHOULD WORK! :4-dontkno


I though I should buy an optical too, but it might also be a waste of money :upset:

Thans for the help stressfreesoul :)

Nope, I don't have any ...
(I got a PS3, but it's in another room and a little difficult to get it here)
The sound system with my previous PC was working just fine...
I had a SoundBlaster Live! 5.1. and I used a digital DIN connector!

I still believe that I possibly forget something...

I thing I should go buy a optical wire, If It doesn't work either, I might buy a new SoundBlaster X-FI, but there's a possibility that the sound system might not work properly again :/

And damn, I just love it...
I'm emotionally connected with it :p

IMHO, buying an optical cable is the cheapest option. It will at least tell you if its just COAX that isnt working.
I do suggest testing it with another source (utilising the coax connection).
It will tell you if you need to take it back to the shop you bought it from...
