I have a Radeon HD 5450 that seems to be working great, but I am not getting 5.1 sound. I did a 5.1 test and the rear speakers will not work individually but when the test tests all the speakers, they will work, they are just really faint. It's because the receiver is taking the 2 channel signal and converting it to 5.1 and it sounds like crap.
I think windows 7 might be the culprit, because I was reading on some forums that people have multiple options in the sound control panel, but I only have stereo as an option.
Now the Radeon HD 5450 is supposed to be able to broadcast up to 7.1, so I'm just not sure what the issue could be.
I could really use some help guys, missing out on 5.1 sound.
The xbox is connected through my Denon AVR-590 and it works flawlessly for games and movies with 5.1.
Any help is much appreciated.
