I went to watch a movie from my PC on the big screen TV last night and could not get any sound. After trying a number of things it seems that the Digitial out on my sound card has ceased to work. I had to reformat my C drive a week or so ago and re-install windows. Thought it might have been a driver issue so did the usual thing, ran driver sweeper, re-installed the latest drivers from Creative and still no love.

My headphones work and its registering sounds on the desk top but nothing is comming out. The Receiver seems to be working fine as the image is comming through without issue and the PS3 sound is perfect also.

I figure its the card playing up again, as I have had a few issues with this since windows 7 came along I figured it might be time for a new card.

I am running my PC through an Onkyo SR707 with 5 speakers. I was thinking of geting this:

Just in case I add more speakers down the road (I know most soundtracks are 5.1) however it seems that it runs on creativer drivers anyway so not sure it will help.

Any other suggestions / recomendations?

Thanks for the advice. After resetting the sound card, installing the drivers and re-running the cabling it seems to be good again. Don't know what the deal is. This thing is just troublesome. Thankfully I can use the SPIDF optical on the sound card again. The Creative console wont recognize the receiver though. Not that I care. It sounds great, that's all that matters.

This is true. Its working now though and I am reluctant to change it again. Should it play up again I'll look at using the Mobo connection.
