Default Rear Surround Speaker problem from Laptop Optical Audio Out

Hi there all... and lemme first congratulate this forum on its huge success!!!

I have connected my uncles Dolby Pro Logic 5.1 Surround System to my laptop using my lappys TOSLINK Optical out into my uncles Dolby TOSLINK Optical In. Now the problem is when i do a surround test on my laptop, I get sounds on the Front Left, Center and Front Right, whilst the Rear Left and Rear right get no sound. I would have believed that my optical was running in stereo if i didn't get any sound on the center speaker either, but that wasn't the case, so i don't know what i am doing wrong

When I run a surround test on my uncles audio amplifier, it gives individual sound on EVERY speaker, which makes me believe nothings wrong with the connection of the speakers to the amplifier, somethings wrong with my Optical Audio OUT.

Id appreciate your help!

Oh, and I have also tried cheking the Surround Sound Options from the SoundMAX control panel, the thing i dont like about the optical audio is that you cant control the volume or the channels from the computer, i need some kind of S/PDIF slider whichll allow me to change the volume from Optical out, but sadly i dont know where to find THAT either!
