Is anyone playing 5.1 sound with minijacks vs spdif?

If it is working in WMC for you, please tell me your sound card.

My MB only has spdif or stereo out from minijacks.


I have a free PCI slot but my experience with sound cards has not been good.


Can I expect a pci windows 7 sound compatible card to work, like a cheap cm chip card off ebay?


I have a dynex 5.1 sound card and it only plays stereo and conflicts with my wonder HDTV tuner.

But windows update has a driver and it works in control panel.


So I dont want to waste money buying a card if it wont work outputting 5.1 sound from the minijacks, rear and center and woofer.

I need a new sound card.

I have 2 pci sound cards that do not work with windows properly anymore.

sound blaster live, dynex envy 24 family 5.1


So yes, I did all the setups and in WMC setup sound.


So would like to know if it will work in WMC IF I get a usable win 7 5.1 sound card?

I installed the realtek drivers AC97 fpor windows 7 and I can now have 5.1 sound from the 3 rear jacks.

In control panel has setup to assign minijacks to 5.1 sound output.


It works. I wonder how many are aware that this is possible.?

I learned something new.
