Thanks, it would be Dolby Digital.
I haven't heard of a sound card that can capture 5.1 channel Dolby Digital/AC-3 from an 5.1 channel Dolby Digital/AC-3 source. Maybe someone else has.
The only devices I have heard of that are able to capture 5.1 AC3 audio input via SPDIF are some of the video capture devices in Hauppauge's HD-PVR and HD-PVR 2 product lines. Note that they can't capture AC3 audio unless they receive AC3 audio as input. I suspect they can't capture just audio by itself, but it may be possible to connect a video source to the analog inputs then capture. Audio can always be demultiplexed to create its own file. Perhaps someone that has one of these devices already set up and a suitable audio source can confirm this works.Ignore list: hello_hello, tried, TechLord
Skydigital Supercast X6, skydigital Supercast U6t, skydigital U3 HD Capture , Hauppauge Collossus 1/2... all of them record AC3
