Diablo III doesn't use EAX (to my knowledge anyway). It is using FMOD, which then plays sound through speakers depending on how they appear in Windows (something like that)
Under normal conditions, that wouldn't be a problem. When your sending audio over a SPDIF cable, you will only get 2 Channel audio by default.
There is technology called Dolby Digital Live and DTS Connect that can take the audio in it's normal format, and send it over the SPDIF cable in a format readable by the receiver (in other words, it converts audio from whatever standard it is using to Dolby Digital or DTS). This is a hardware feature too, and not present on all cards (including my Xonar DG card).
For audio that is native Dolby Digital or DTS, you don't need to do the conversion process over SPDIF.
My question is, does Diablo III have Dolby Digital?

I made the same thread a few months back, didn't get a response. Only reason I didn't respond on it was because it was moved to tech support forums, which if you didn't know, is only accessible to those with a Diablo III license (I was never invited to beta).
I got it from my hdmi on geforce to reciever.
HDMI doesn't have the 2-channel restriction or need the conversion process that SPDIF needs, so surround sound in those conditions should work easily :)

Looks like you can post there now, guess it was changed recently
