I am trying to get Dolby surround working on my Sound Blaster X G6, connected via USB to PC and plugged optically into a 5.1 Logitech system.

I can get individual speakers to work via the test tones in the SB Connect software (edit - no I can't, the Logitech still shows a stereo input signal), but no surround sound in games.
