I hooked SPDIF out to the coax digital in on the receiver... set SPDIF Out as default in Sound, and digital audio is playing correctly.
I popped in the dvd "Live Free or Die Hard" and played it in Media Center... I believe I set everything up right, as the Dolby Digital icon is displayed during playback.
I'll post an update when I finally have the receiver hooked up in 5.1 channel mode. Right now it's just 2.0 as I had to pirate the mono 1/8 (sub's output) to RCA cable (receiver's input) from the sub to use for the Audigy to receiver hookup.
For what it's worth there is a clarity to the sound that wasn't there before.
