Does anyone have experience with ATI Radeon HD cards and Valve games? I'm trying to find the solution to getting surround sound from Counter-Strike and Half-Life games but am only getting 2 channel. I know at least 5.1 is available because I can watch movies with AC-3 and ffdshow plugins to get multi-channel audio. In the game options I have 5.1 set but I think there's a disconnect between the game and Windows audio controller. I'm using two Radeon HD 3850s in crossover mode and had to install the Realtek HDMI Audio driver separate from whichever software version I installed when I configured the setup about 6 months ago. The most recent version of Sapphire's ATI CCC didn't work properly so I had to revert to an older version. I do have an Audigy 2 ZS Platinum that is installed but not active. I've read in numerous places that the stereo analog outs (7.1 channel 3.5mm cables) would not work well with a receiver and would pick up static, not to mention the fact that they would need to go from 3.5 mm to RCA. Any thoughts on this problem?
