    5.1 surround sound non existent.

    Medion Akoya p7700d MD8848

    Hi, I searched for a few weeks now to find a way to hear surround sound from my pc to hifi, all to no avail. The Microsoft man said my pc was too old and doesn't support it. I have been online (Medion Akoya P7700 D MD8848) link to my pc. It states .....

    Sound

    A 7.1 sound chip from Realtek is integrated on the main board. As the owner of a surround speaker system with an external decoder, you can use the chip without any restrictions: You will find both a coaxial and an optical S / P-DIF output on the back of the PC. Of course, you can also leave the sound decoding to the chip: In this case, connect the system to the usual 3 speaker connections (orange: subwoofer output and center output, black: rear speaker output, silver: side speaker output) .
    I have Adobe Audition which shows 5 channels on a particular FLAC track, but I can only get 2 tracks to sound. I can hear surround sound through the hifi from the tv using Prime or even Sky Q. I just cannot play surround from my pc.
    If anyone can help I would be grateful. Regards.

    :)

  2. 5.1 Surround sound in windows 10

    Hi Jeka,

    There are some reasons why you don't get the 5.1 surround sound. Some of these are caused by the type of audio format, how the file was encoded, if the file supports 5.1 surround sound and such. For us to determine what's causing
    the concern more precisely, please provide information on the following:

    5.1 surround sound not working :/

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    In order to output 5.1 audio from your PC, the sound card of your computer should have the support for it. Not all soundcards can output 5.1 surround signal. However, you can try the following steps and see if it works.



    • Right click on the Volume icon (bottom right corner) and select
      Sounds to open the sound Properties window.
    • Go to the Playback tab and right click on your 5.1 speakers and select Set as Default.
    • Right click on the speaker again and select Configure.
    • In the speaker setup window, select 5.1 surround and click Next.
    • Check all the checkboxes under optional speakers and click Next.
    • Check the checkboxes under Select full-range speakers if applicable and click Next.
    • Click the Finish button once the configuration completes and see if you get the desired output audio signal.

    Issues with 5.1 Surround Sound with Windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community Forums.

    What is the make and model of the computer?

    Which audio driver are you using?

    In order to output 5.1 surround sound, the sound card and the audio device (Speakers) must have 5.1 support and not all sound cards are configured to output 5.1 surround signal. Also, as you have mentioned that there could be compatibility issues where
    the audio drivers may not be fully supported on Windows 10?

    If the sound card supports, and is configured to output 5.1 surround signal, please ensure that the computer is set up properly to output the signal.

    • Open the Run dialog box by pressing the
      Windows key and R together.
    • Type mmsys.cpl and hit the Enter key to open the
      Sound control panel.
    • Under Playback tab, right click on the audio device (speaker) and select
      Set default.
    • Click on the Configure button to launch the device (speaker) setup window.
    • Click the dropdown list under Audio channels and select
      5.1 Surround and click Next.
    • Check the boxes Center, Subwoofer and
      Side pair and click Next.
    • Click Finish once the configuration completes.

    Sometimes, the outdated, missing or corrupted audio drivers can also cause problems in 5.1 surround output. So, I would also suggest to update the audio drivers or uninstall/reinstall the audio driver if it the latest version of the driver is already
    installed. Please refer to the article below.

    Update drivers in Windows 10

    You may also try installing the High Definition Audio Device driver
    and see if that makes any difference. Please refer to the steps for uninstalling and reinstalling drivers under section
    Fix your audio issues of the link below.
