hi to all, excuse for my bad english...I'm Italian...so...a few days ago I bought the turtle beach 800 7.1 headphones, which are also compatible with the PC. My specs are: win7 64, mobo asus p6t deluxe v2. I connected the headphones to the Pc via usb cable and optical cable for DTS audio. So...the problem is that I can not activate 7.1 surround and I can only use headphones in stereo mode. I have read some pages of your topic concerning the 5.1 and 7.1 surround and for what I know, my motherboard supports the soundmax drivers, not the realtek .... there is a solution? please help me ...

Anyone....please! :(

From your user manual:

The Elite 800 may also be used on Windows or Mac OSX computers equipped with a Dolby Digital Live (DDL) sound card using a digital optical S/PDIF output.

NOTE:
Your computer must have a sound card with Dolby Digital Live installed in order to hear DTS Headphone:X surround sound through the headset. If your computer does not have that, you will only hear enhanced stereo audio
