Hi, thought I would ask this question in a positive way rather than my 5.1 does not work.
A new XC-895 purchased a month ago with Realtek 5.1 sounds. When I test the speakers with the sound panel all 6 speakers make a sound. But whatever I play only comes out in stereo.
I've had the computer supplier tech team look at it for the last month, they've logged on remotely and checked everything and say yip, everything is working fine, as when testing the speakers all 6 sound. But they admit they're baffled as to why playing only gives stereo. they said they cannot do anymore, as the computer is working fine ... ... except it does not for me as I cannot play 5.1 sounds.
I have got the screen shot of all the settings, so hoping someone has managed to get 5.1 coming out of all 6 speakers can help with telling me how they did it. It is a Cambridge Soundworks Creative 5.1 Desktop Theatre Speaker System I have got, worked perfectly well with my old computer system, and can get sound coming out of all 6 speakers when using Test in the sound Panel, but only stereo when playing anything else.
I'm using audio jacks for connections to the speakers, and they're plugged in correctly at the back. Realtek driver version 6.0.9107.1
