New Version doesn't work with 5.1 surround sound configuration?

I can definitely confirm, that FxSound is working fine on 5.1 (Logitech Z906 here). However, as far as i know, there IS a still existing issue with the configuration of the speaker setup in Windows since it shows you two SIDE speakers and not two REAR speakers, when selecting 5.1. As i was told, this is a known issues which was once fixed in a older version but caused other issues and was therefore reverted. That said, there might be other multi-monitor issues open currently and maybe automatically solved with upcoming versions.

I’ve come across issues with the app and 5.1 running X-Fi Titanium on DTS, in my case it seems specific to upmixing.

I’ve found that if the individual app supports upmixing then 5.1 works with FXSound, but if I have FXSound running and want to play music via youtube then my X-Fi Titanium settings for X-Fi CMSS 3D / DTS Upmixing are ignored and youtube plays in stereo, closing the FxSound App and re-launching my browser to youtube and Upmixing suddenly kicks in again.

Something in the FxSound app seems to be overriding X-Fi CMSS 3D or DTS Neo or both.

My solution at the moment is to only launch FxSound when I’m using my headphones via Volt 1 Interface.

My suggestion would be if its possible to add the ability to blacklist audio interfaces in FxSound so it doesnt touch them as regardless of what interface is selected, if the app is running it breaks Upmixing.

Nice of you to report this, Dan. Appreciated.
I doubt, however, that the solution you proposed will be a priority fix.
Simply because it just doesn’t seem likely to me that a blacklist function in the app will be implemented anytime soon.
FxSound has always been a system-wide program, and I doubt that this will change in the future.
But please do note that this is merely speculation on my part.

That’s understandable and makes sense, thank you for your reply. It would be a “nice to have”.

It looks like these functions are related to the driver. There are similar Dolby/DTS features on some built-in realtek.
Running the program switches to its driver (audio device), disabling the functions of a sound card driver.
You can change the number of channels in the system settings for the DFX/FxSound audio device, but do not use the functions of another driver and the included software.

Count me in, whenever I changed the speaker configuration to 5.1 Surround it reverts back to stereo.
