make sure the switch is set to 6 channel mode.

 

Not at home so I can't check mine, but IIRC the '6 Channel Direct' option should then replace the stereo input modes or appear after the stereo 3 option.

Don't go to the xfi control panel go to windows control panel then sound etc,

 

also make sure all other audio drivers are uninstalled and that yo have a fresh install of the xfi drivers.

considering that windows will down mix to stereo and the xfi will up mix to 5.1 what is the point of that switch?

Three separate stereo sources can be plugged in and switched between. Switch on the Dolby Pro Logic II and you can listen in 'surround sound' from up to three devices. Perhaps handy for multiple devices in a lounge room setting.
