When you're not using Dolby or DTS encoding, you need that "play stereo mix over optical" option enabled. Yes, it's only stereo, but all the SBX effects works, so it great for headphone surround with an external amp - lossless PCM stereo signal.
I need DDL/DTS because of 5.1 audio, my HT have only SPDIF IN.
