Running dvd player to computer for audio

 doubting_thomas -
not sure if this is the right place to put this

i'm trying to run a dvd player through my computer so the audio will play on the computer's speakers (the speakers are 5.1)

i've got the dvd player connected to the computer by a coax digital audio connection, the computer being set to listen to it as a recording device, and it plays sound just fine when i put in a cd that plays in stereo, but when i put in a dvd that plays in surround, i hear nothing.

any way to fix this?

Dear Thomas,

Please get to the Advanced Speaker Settings in the Sound and Audio settings and from there have it well configured.

Thanks in advance.

on the dvd player or the computer? i've already gone through all the settings on the player
