I have done following steps to connect my Shuttle HTPC to my A/V Receiver (Sony STRDE925):

- Connect a digital coax cable to the digital coax input of my receiver
- Connect a " '1/8' (3.5mm) Stereo Male to RCA phono female adapter" to the other end of digital coax cable
- Connect adapter end of digital coax cable to rear spdif speaker jack of the computer (orange color, tried black too)

I am still unable to get the sound from Shuttle HTPC through A/V Receiver. I have checked that sound card works with headphone and other stereo inputs. I have checked that Realtek ALC888 spdif output frequencies matches with my receiver's input frequencies. (44.1 Khz and 48 Khz). Digital coax of receiver works fine with the DVD player's digital output.

I would appreciate any help in this regard.

Sounds silly, but have you tried rebooting your PC after making all your connections? Sometimes "plug and play" didn't work for me when I was using XP, so I had to restart before hardware changes were detected...
