Go to the sound and audio device of Windows Control Panel to check if the playback default device is set to Xonar DGX Audio Device, instead of other onboard AC97 or HDA codec device. If it’s not, please set it to Xonar DGX Audio Device and restart your application. The S/PDIF protocol specification (IEC-60958) can only carry 2-channel PCM data or non-PCM AC3/DTS data. So, when a user selects PCM output for S/PDIF, the Xonar sound card will always deliver 2 channel PCM data through the S/PDIF output port
