Question: No sound through spdif connection

I just got my ARea51 X58 and am very impressed with the beauty, speed, and video. One problem,I have no sound through my SPDIF connection. I'm connected directly to my HDTV flat screen via SPDIF for audio and DDI for video. I"m trying everything I know before calling Alienware for help. Any ideas? Thanks.
