long time lurker, first time poster..

please be gentle

I was wondering if anyone can help me, I just got a new receiver the Onkyo Ht-RC260, and I am feeding it a Coax signal from my HTPC that is equipped with a M-audio Revolution 5.1 sound card, I chose this card long ago, cause it had the best sounding analogue output of any other sound card at the time. My previous Amp was analogue in, so it worked great. But I just got this new Onkyo, and I ma having troubles getting surround sound to play, It seems that anything surround sound is coming thru with the voices very low in volume, I have even tried to crank up the center channel +10db, and turn down the rest of the system -10db, but it's still only a very faint sound coming from the center channel..?

what am I doing wrong? or is there a hardware conflict with this sound card?

I know the center channel works, as it sounds great when I play a movie with a blue ray player, just the signal from the computer is the problem.

anyone have any ideas?

I'm not familiar with the Revo but is there a muting option in the control M-audio control panel?

I used to have an AP 24/96 in my HTPC and there were a couple of different muting options there.

nope, no muting options. I have the M-audio software set to digital, but the receiver is showing PCM, and I think this is the problem....

anyone know the settings menu of the HT-RC260, i've looked and can't find where to change this to Spdif
