I just bought this new motherboard gigabyte EP45-UD3P and install new windows xp3 with new realtek sound driver from web site(also tried the MB CD). Im having problem with 5.1 sound output.. My speaker setiing is selected as 5.1 from windows control panel.. Realtek HD audio manager (5.10.0.5780) set to 6 speakers. All the speaker tested from realtek audio manager seems plays sound perfectly but When i play music with winamp and media player 11 only 2 front speaker sound is coming out but center and rear(set as side) speaker has no sound.... can anyone help me pls...

If you're playing back MP3s, there's only two channels there to begin with... Stream some HD video, and you'll hear it right away...

thanks for quick reply... yah its true when i play dvd i hear all speakers... but my last gigabyte MOBO played all the mp3 5.1 too with winamp... so is there any option to set it up to play mp3s 5.1......?

Simply go into the audio manager, and enable this:

From WikiPedia:
"DTS Neo: like Dolby's Pro Logic IIx system, can take stereo content and convert the sound into 5.1 or 6.1 channel format..."

that didnt help "bilbat"... still 2.1 sound coming but thanks

the stange thing is in "realtek HD audio manager" if i turn oragne c/sub, and black Ls/Rs, green L/R to
orange L/R, black L/R, green L/R so basically all L/R (Front speaker output) than all chaneel speakers sound is playing fine....

any ideas????

Ackk! I think you may be stuck, then. My audio hardware (Logi X-540) has a 'matrix' function to accomplish this, so I couldn't tell if the NEO does anything... If that doesn't work, I don't know what to tell you - if the audio streams aren't there, well, they aren't there! The NEO function isn't that hot to begin with - if I leave it enabled, I get audio 'stuttering' in HiDef 5.1 streams... I'll keep looking, and post back if I find any kind of solution!

I have a EP45T-UD3P board (btw, does anyone know what the "T" delineates) and I also have had to deal with this same annoyance but, alas, with Winamp I have found an albeit rudimentary solution that works.

Go to the DSP plugins section on the Winamp website and download Blade DolbyMP Encoder. It actually works pretty well. How, I'm not sure. I think it splits the center channel into surround, but I find that it does a great job and adds a whole new dimension to my MP3s. Check it out.

Try a peek here:

they probably have a trial download...
If you don't mind the time converting files, I think this:
http://www.nidesoft.com/mp3-converter.html
will convert 2.0 MP3s into 5.1 AACs; if it works for you, it might be worth a trip to Seek'nDestroy - wink ;)

NO...the t is for the "Trusted Platform Module" or TPM, like bitlocker for hardware, if someone steals your ram or hd and such (and other devious future uses), your mb has a fit because the TPM stores the hardware key, as well as pseudo random seed function.

see item 6.

Built-in TPM chip with 2048bits encryption to highest level digital data protection

ok guys i did install new windows... but still no solution.. One thing I wanna know my last motherboard was also gigabyte (ga-965p-ds3) and it did play same mp3 songs through winamp and wmp11 at 5.1 with no problem... than why this latest mobo cant play mp3 at 5.1 channel... Even the Realtek HD audio manager config looked same in both MOtherboard.. all i change in my last mobo in "Realtek HD audio manager" 2 channel to 5.1 and it played 5.1 sound....

I even mailed gigabyte and here what they replied

Thank you for your kindly mail and enquiry. Whether the multi-channel enabled or not is also depend on the media file you played and also the player you're using, we suggest you can contact Microsoft and Winamp for instruction to enable multi-channel while playing audio file.



I am so pissed with GB now...

how do guys post pics in this forum anyway...?

I always use ImageShack:

I believe you have to register there first; it will allow you to browse to an image, and then upload it; once it is uploaded, it will give you a couple of "Links for Forums" to your picture; they look like this:
