Xonar DX - Music all Static

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Had the Audio Center up and running fine with music in 5.1. Tried to watch an internet video. Had to switch from 5.1 mode to 4 speaker mode. Internet video sounded fine. Then when I switched back to 5.1 to listen to music again. It's all staticy. Unless I go back to 4 speaker setting.

What am I missing here? What setting?

Well most importantly, why are you listening to music in 5.1? It's 2.1.

Double check it's seated properly? I once had a card that wasn't seated properly and gave me a lovely burst of white noise.

4 speaker doesn't use all my speakers. I like how it sounds. If I had some better 2.1 front left and right speakers it probably would sound better. But I'll play with it. It's also the only setting that uses my subwoofer.

So if I stayed in 2.1 I wouldn't have the internet to music switching problem?

Meh, I use 7.1 when listening to stereo.
Just like people use Stereo Wide or Quad Stereo.
The difference is that it makes a mix of left and right in the center since the sub acts just like it usually does.
So using surround on stereo music doesn't alter it, it just redirects it to more speakers.
Uhh.. Thing
