Can't get the optical audio interface to work on the Razer Chimera 5.1 for the PC. Any ideas why?

Also when I have them connected via 3.5mm stereo, for some reason when I do the audio test in realtech HD audio manager, it plays the same sound equally in both ears, with the sound that should be coming out of the right speaker about 1/10 as loud as what should be coming out of the left.
If I can get the optical 5.1 surround sound that would be ideal, however at the very least I'd like to have properly balanced stereo sound. If I can't get even that to work, I may just return them all together; games with directional sound like LoL are all but unplayable.
Also I tried calling razer tech support but the guy wasn't very helpful at all.

Nevermind just fixed this myself; turns out i had to completely disable the analog output in control panel in order for the optical out to get a signal. just changing the default output wasnt enough
