Last week i'm having a problem with my sound
I use windows 7 with P6TD Deluxe mobo and SoundMAX audio drivers and i have a 5.1 channel sound system.Since i installed the system it did work correctly without problem
For about 2 months i constantly get a notification that normally apperas when i plug a new jack
similar to this one http://lh3.ggpht.com/renjusgallery/Ryt9PP8zTJI/AAAAAAAA...
that says: what did you put in the green jacj even though i haven't even touched the green jack
the notification kept appering so i thought that re-installing SoundMAX would solve this.But not only did it remain but now i have another problem:
Only the front speakers play,but the setup in the driver is 5.1.If i run the ''test'' through the SoundMAX or through windows ''playback devices'' all the speakers play,but all the applications are 2.0
and thnx in advance
Either set the playback to 5.1 in the soundmax control center (whatever its called - the sound software it comes with) or right click on the sound icon - click playback devices - right click on speakers (or your speaker output) and configure speakers.
If you are using digital (optical or whatever) only dolby digitally encoded sound will work correctly in 5.1
both SoundMAX control center and windows' Sound settings (playback devices) are configured as 5.1, and -as i said before- if i run the 'Test' ,both in SoundMAX and Windows the test is correct-all 5.1 speakers play.Evrywhere else is just the front speakers(2.0),like WMP,VLC,Firefox,etc.
And no,i'm not using digital or optical or whatever
if i run the 'Test' ,both in SoundMAX and Windows the test is correct-all 5.1 speakers play.Evrywhere else is just the front speakers(2.0),like WMP,VLC,Firefox,etc.
Audio files encoded in Stereo will output as stereo, regardless of how many speakers you plug in. You probably had a setting enabled ("Speaker Fill", prehaps?) that "filled in" the extra speakers when stereo audio streams were played back.
