Ok, I bought the card a few months ago and I've only just realised I am only getting 2.1! I've done loads of 5.1 tests and the rear speakers are mute! They are working because I can swap the wires from the front and the back. I've tried all different kinds of combination on the card. My speakers are Sirocco Crossfire. They are actually 4.1 but that doesn't matter. At the moment I have the front speakers plugged (on the soundcard) into the green socket and the rear speakers plugged into the black socket. But whatever socket I plug the rear speakers into and hear no 4.1! If I plug the rear speakers into the green sockets, I then hear them. Help!
Did you configure it to be 5.1?
AgentlaidlawDid you configure it to be 5.1?
What? How? Who? When? Where?
EDIT: After playing with the buttons and software etc. It seems to be working now. Weird....
