    5.1 Audio Recognized by Windows, but not using

    This one is puzzling me. I recently reinstalled all of Windows onto a brand new SSD, but kept all of the original hardware.

    I have sound that is pumped through a Asus Xonar DG sound card and it uses the Asus Xonar software. Before reinstalling Windows, everything worked like a charm and I had 5.1 surround sound. Now, I don't.

    If I go to the sound profile on Windows, I can see that the speakers are set to 5.1 and running a sound test confirms that the rear left and right channels make noise. Yet, playing music or watching video (both Chrome and local) it refuses to use those rear speakers. It used to before the reinstall.

    I am running the latest version of the Asus software and drivers. Thoughts?

    Windows 10 - 1709 update, messed up my Xonar DG, had 1.81 and 1.80 (tried reinstalling 3-4 times)What worked was rolling aback to 1.75a-r3.Steps that worked for me.Uninstalling current drivers, Reboot, Installing UNi-Xonar-1822-v1.75a-r3.exe from http://maxedtech.com/asus-xonar-unified-drivers/ , Reboot. Set Speakers to 5.1, turn on SPDIF out. Profit!!!I am weird in that I use the SPDIF out to a Yamaha Receiver for Left and Right signal but I used the Sub OUT from my DG to my Klipsch Promedia Sub. I am only using the .1 of the promedia.
