Default Re: How do I get 5.1 audio through spdif

in my control panel under playback devices, I have 3 options, speakers(disabled, unplugged), Digital out spdif(working,default) and digital hdmi(working). When I select hdmi I can chosee configure to set my speaker configuration but only shows stereo. When I select spdif, the configure option is greyed out. I tried playing a 720p mkv file which has 5.1 dts audio and i only get audio in the front Left and front right speakers. I run the same file using my laptop which has hdmi out and it plays on all speakers.
