I use a 6.1 system at home, outputting from my HTPC via optical (SPDIF).

I also have an antec fusion case, and I wanted to know if there was a way to display the speakers EQ levels on the LCD display?

I know that when you use AC3 filter, you can see a speaker output, which is exactly the kind of thing I'd like to see on my LCD display - I imagine you would have to use something like LCD smartie to achieve this?

It's fairly old software now, but I've done something similar with LCDC and a Matrix Orbital USB display before, I think the LCD Studio software lets you do something similar.

You can see pictures on similar setups of HTPCs on MO's forums.

+1 for suggesting LCDC, even if it doesn't work for this LCD (it very well might). It kicks butt for character LCDs. – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Feb 10 '10 at 17:02
Thanks for the LCDC link, however the 2nd link you provided appears to be dead... I'll check out LCDC and report back! – falter Feb 12 '10 at 14:57
