You may need to set your system to stereo. The headphone out is probably just a stereo signal.

You may need to use the optical out to get surround sound. Check the manual for the TV.

alright well the thing is that in surround sound mode it does come from all speakers
the problem is that the sound coming from the middle speaker is the loudest
you can barely hear the front left and right or the back left and right
is that normal the center speaker simply over shadows all other speakers
so all i could hear is voice coming from the middle speaker and cant really listen to effects etc. etc.
is that the way its to behave???

well yeah and in stereo mode its backwards lol
i can hear all four speakers well they sound great
but the thing is that i can barely listen to voice
the center speaker doesnt give out any signal

and im using a rca to 3.5 mm
to connect my sorround system to my tv

Check the levels on the surround speakers. Could also be the fact that the stereo can't quite read the signal from the sound card.
