5.1 acting like 2.1

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, so I went to a friends house to a lan party and I took my logitech x-230 with me. And so I switched to a 2.1 config once i got there and everything works fine. At home I have a x-530 which is a 5.1 surround sound. Before I left for the LAN all the speakers worked with everything ( games, youtube). So I get back today and now for some reason the 5.1 works when i test it, it plays out of all the channels, but when I play games or watch youtube videos it's 2.1. Anyone know a solution to this?

Do you have the simulated surround button pushed on the volume controller? Did you try unplugging all the cables and re-plugging them in? Just simple suggestions, although I'm sure you've tried those.

I do and I have... this is really beginning to annoy me.

You want the simulated surround button OFF unless you are only using the one audio cable to hook the subwoofer up to the PC.

I know on my buddy's something similar happened, and it turned out to be a hardware issue, and a warranty replacement solved his problem. (X 540)

But what tells me that it's not a hardware failure is that when I test each channel sound comes out of it. So they're all working as they should.
