I have Ubuntu 8.10 and I have a 5.1 speaker system a Logitech Z-5500 and trying to play music in Rythymbox, I have a MSI Neo2 Platinum Motherboard with Onboard Audio. (I believe for Windows it uses Realtek '97 audio codec.) If I use the analog of the speakers I can get 2 front speakers working and sub thats it. As for optical I can not get it to put out any sound at all. I dual boot Windows and have tested in Windows and my whole speaker system works. Any thoughts or things that need to be done would greatly be appreciated.
