Does anybody possibly know the answer to my problem? 


My set up is windows 8.1, an Asus sound card connected to a receiver via S/PDIF.  I have a set of 5.1 speakers connected to the receiver.  Everything works as it should when playing games, movies, you tube etc.  I get 5.1 sound.  There is one program that will only give me stereo sound.  Below is the screenshot of my options for the sound.

I have a few choices for audio output device and passthrough output device but the only ones that will give me any sound are


Directsound: spdif - s/pdif pass through device (asus xonar d2x audio device)




Wasapi : spdif - s/pdif pass-through device (asus xonar d2x audio device)


Can anybody see from those settings why I am not getting 5.1 sound? 


Via coaxial/optical out put the digital formats supported by the receiver are


Dolby Digital 5.1


DTS 5.1


DTS 96/24 5.1


My receiver is a Sony STR-DH540
