No Surround sound in games.

Hello all. I have z906 speakers. They have both analog and spdif support.
I'm using a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1 Pro which i just bought because i thought my onboard sound card was crap.
When i plug them in with analog cables, only 2 front work ( yes i tested every possbile cable, every option in my sound board.)
When i plug in spdif, both ac3, dts mp3 etc work for movies etc etc, (with ffsdshow)
Now my problem is, why with games and with having Dolby Digital Live enabled from my sound card i only get stereo sound? with both analog and spdif?
using creative's most recent drivers for windows 8
Please help me because i already spend 60euro for new sound card and almost 9 hours of internet searching..
Thank you.
