Extigy: Dolby digital over optical digital out?

Discussion in 'Soundblaster Live' started by Johannes Lebek, Jun 30, 2003.

  1. Hi there,

    I have a SoundBlaster Extigy and I want to use my home cinema system to
    watch DVDs that I play on my notebook. I know that I could connect Extigy to
    the AV receiver using the three 1/8" connectors (rear, front and
    center/subwoofer) on the back. But in my case this is not applicable,
    because the Extigy box is 5 meters away from my AV receiver.

    I tried to connect using optical digital output, but, unfortunately, the
    Dolby digital signal was not transferred. Is the optical digital out for MD
    (stereo) only? I think, this is waste of resources...

    There is another (electrical) digital out on the back. Does it transfer the
    Dolby digital signal?
    Thanks for your comments,
