Can only choose Centre Front speakers

Post by swarfendor437 »

Hi, I have a SoundBlaster Audigy Rx sound card. This does not show up at all in Sound | Hardware and no sound card detected. It is a pity can't get ALSA working and have qasutils available. The Volume Control picks up all the channels but can only output to one of them:

I have a Logitech Z506 surround sound system attached.

Hi, I am fully aware that EMU10k is the soundblaster (I come from GNU/Linux land!)

just to add fifefox is not refreshing correctly when I submit a post it just goes blank, which means if I hit the refresh button I end up with two posts!
