Can someone help me here please. All speakers working when i test the under 7.1 configuration in windows. Also in the software sonic studio pro all the 7 speakers incluing subwoofer work when i click on the speakers. But when i play a music or any sound from any other source like you tube, movies etc only front speakers(L/R) and sub woofer works .The center , side and rear speakers dont work at all. There is no sound l .I also tested some 7.1 channel and dolby /Digital audio files(assuming that may be the audio files i was playing were only 2 channel /stereo) but still no use only front left and right work . I have connected this to a creative inspire 7.1 surround system. The front L/R are connected via RCA to 3.5 mm going to green jack saying front in the sub. Rest of the sound card jacks( REAR/CENTER/SIDE) are connected via 3.5 mm cables to the respective jacks(REAR/CENTER/SIDE) on the sub.

Rear speakers and side speakers ad center speaker work during sound test but not otherwise. The driver software sonic studio pro from ASUS for xonar 7 (64 bit) does not have the speaker fill option like the realtek audio managers so no speaker fill option

Finally i got all speakers to work when i play via vlc media player by enabling dolby feaure in both vlc as well as asus xonar software

I guess i was playing stereo files but its very bad i have to use vlc player everytime which converts stereo to dolby surround . Asus xonar should have the feature .Or am i not seeing those settings in asus xonar software ?????

how can i play stereo sources in all 7 speakers directly from browser via youtube or any other site.

only my front speakers work if i dont use vlc media player

i found a solution the flash players in fire fox browser upmixes stereo in to dolby surround and hence all 7 speakers work but chrome doesnt do that

also in the media players, dolby surround has to be enabled . Too bad no speaker fill or stereo upmixing feature in asus xonar u7 drivers

also i tried the modded unified drivers for asus xonar which has stereo upmixing feature but they dont support u7.

hope this will help people having problems with asus xonar u7
