You need software that is not yet available, but promised shortly. Try to find the thread about the MAudio revolution. It has details about this. Your other options are the Audigy2 soundcard which comes with it's own DVD-Audio software; and a Settop DVD-Audio player. Regular DVD players can not play DVD-Audio. BTW, none of the soundcards will output a DVD-Audio signal to your receiver. The only option is analog, this is not the soundcard manufacturer's choice, but the DVD-Audio standard owner's restriction.
