5.1 surround sound on Gigabyte GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3 Z68??

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have been installing so many different versions of Realtek already and I still can't get the 5.1 sounds out put on my computer. I have a fiber optic optical cable from my sound to my computer. Does any one have similar motherboards/ set up that have working 5.1 sounds?

I have the Realtek Audio Manager but where the heck is the Speaker Configuration tab?
Also, when I click the TEST button for Dolby Digital and DTS , I get sound coming out from all 5 speakers and sub. Why doesn't it output 5.1 normally then?

Probably because the media you are playing is not 5.1. Odds are if you play a DVD with your software player set for thr 5.1 track, it'll work fine. Most Realteks only output audio in the format they are fed. I.e. a CD is 2.0 PCM stereo, so it is output in 2.0 PCM stereo.

Also, note, to send 5.1 over optical TOSLINK the media must be in a Dolby codec a la DTS etc. As TOSLINK is bandwidth limited and PCM can only pass through in 2.0 stereo.

Hm... I had the sound system on a different system before and there was an option to choose 5.1 sound. All I have for this new system are 2 channel sounds
