Y50-70 Touch SPDIF does not work



I figured I'll try my luck here before calling tech support.

I got a Lenovo Y50-70 Touch UHD and recently I've decided to try to get it to play music through my receiver using laptop's SPDIF output.

I know that the receiver's optical SPDIF port works since I've been using it up to this point with my desktop.

I got a mini toslink adaptor, connected the cable, selected Realtek Digital Output as Default in the Playback Devices panel. Started playing music - no audio

The playback device reports as Ready and when I click Test, it thinks it's doing a test of both channels but I still don't hear anything.


I put a mirror up the port and noticed the lack of usual red dot. Everything tells me that the system is functional and yet I don't the port is working. 

Is there anything i need to do to enable it or something?

I have the same issue, and W10. Have you managed to solve this?

What's DOS?
