I have just connected a new 5.1 surround system, which sounds okay so far but when I go to check the configuration and test each speaker the "Configure" button greys out. Is this normal?
I am using the S/PDIF out with a bog standard optical cable.
If I go back to analogue cables then I can test each speaker fine.
