Hi guys, I've been receiving conflicting info about the Optical out on the G6. I've been trying to get the G6 to run 5.1 on my Home theatre system via optical but its a no go. Read a thread here and the guy says it does. From amazon.com: Q: does it do 5.1 via the optical out? I'm planning to plug it into a Logitech 5.1 speaker set. A: No, there is no support for 5.1 via optical out. By Creative Labs, Inc. on December 31, 2018 Q: As i understand the switch outputs 5.1 ch surround via pcm. will the g6 output 5.1 surround via the optical out port? A: In order to enjoy 5.1 Dolby Digital Decoding with your Creative Sound BlasterX G6, you will have to connect the audio source to it using the SPDIF jack (mini-TOSLINK cable).
