How can I make 5 out of 5 working in 5.1?

Postby maduranga on Fri Aug 03, 2007 9:14 am

Hello.. I have setup a 5.1 surround configuration in my pc. But when i play an audio or video file, only two speakers are working(stereo) in the 5.1. How can i make other 3 speakers working when i play a mp3 file via xmms or any other application?
