5.1 System but no No Center / Orange connector. please help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am using my old cambridge 5.1 sound system. Its great, has Dolby digital support etc and overall pretty nice too. but only has the Green and Black(Rear) Connectors, But No Center / Orange connector.

I am using Realtec built in HD audio and everything sounds fine except in some games like mafia 2 during cut scenes the character voices dont play. I am think itds due to the lack of the Center Channel / Orange Connector not being present.

I dont want to set it at stereo and miss out on the awesome 5.1 experience. How do I solve this?

Because 5 Satellite + Sub = 5.1 See. - I know not in the traditional sense of speaking but it's got a separate Dolby Digital Decoder Box that decodes the Center Channel. But only has a Green and Black connectors.

Anyhow, I went into Realtec HD Audio, I had selected 5.1 but then there was a option to untic the center channel and I did that and bada bing bada boom! Now I have sound in Cut Scene's. But if anybody else have any other suggestions let me know.

Eh.. Funky. My Realtek Audio cant play 5.1 Plus my Home Entertainment System has no decoder so I'll be buying an Audio card in the coming months. How does it sound?

Sounds fairly good actually, considering I'm using the built in Realtek HD Audio on my evga board, I think 7.1. I paid good money for it back in the day, these used to sell for around $400 - $500 10 - 11 years ago

good times..
