STR-DE835 Surround - Rear Speakers Functioning, Not Emitting

  1. Another question. Sorry for question-leeching.

    Anyways, I'm trying to set up Surround for my computer using the S/PDIF-Out to a receiver. It doesn't seem to be working out. I have all the satellites up except for the center, which I can't find. I'm using an Sony STR-DE835 receiver. It has Multi-Channel Decoding, DTS and Dolby Digital support, as well as Pro Logic.

    The system I have up is this: I've got the S/PDIF going to the receiver, which distributes it to both some very large stereo speakers and a subwoofer, and then the B-set (FR, FL, C, RR, RL, SW), which are all smaller speakers. I can switch between A- and B-sets pretty quickly, using a dial. I've got all the satellite distances programmed in, and when I turn the receiver on, I can hear static in the rear speakers. The only problem is, when I do a soundtest in my Realtek audio controller manager, sound only emits from the the front speakers.

    Any ideas?
