Weird Sound issue

Recommended Posts

I have the following components.


1 x Logitech Z5500D


1 x Gigabyte P45 DS4P Motherboard with onboard HD Audio yada yada yada.


When I hook the speakers up via analogue, and set the HD Audio Prefs to 5.1 channel surround sound and run the test no sound comes from my Rear Speakers


When I do the above but set the Prefs to 8 Channel surround sound, the rear speakers work when I run the sound test!




Please note:


1) I realise that music is often Stereo (hence no 5.1 output)

2) I realise some DVD's are not 5.1 (hence not always 5.1 output)

Try going into Realtek sound manager and ticking "Speaker Fill" in the options.


You are on the right track with the source only been 2 channel. Next load up some codecs (ffdshow) and play back a DTS Dvd.


Pick jaw up off the ground and continue....
