Exclamation Whats the point of SPDIF? I cant use it to Que! (HP DV6000)

I'm trying to DJ live from my laptop. Half the reason i bought this thing is because i noticed it had 2 media outputs.. So i figure great, one for the speakers and one for my headphones to que things.

I stopped by my local strip club (long story, dont ask lol) and grab a copy of "BPM Studio" which is what he was using at the club. And it was working exactly the way i imagined (speakers/que sperate).

Now that ive busted 'er open and started plugging stuff in.. Its another story. The same sound comes out of the SPDIF as the regular headphone jack (they're right next to eachother).

I've eddited the preferences in the program, and the two jacks show themselves as completely different devices with different drivers... And its still not letting me seperate the sound.

Can someone PLEASE help me? This would really bum me out if the main reason i bought this laptop is void.

Thank you for all your knowledge!
