  1. Hi, Just joined this site after reading some post, looks like a helpful place. so heres my quick question...

    I have soundblaster live! 5.1 Value outputting the 6 channels to my RCA home theater using the 6 channel input. the 5 channels are working but the sub isn't. I have tried playing Far Cry and watch DVD's, both with 5.1 enabled and play Mp3's using Windows media player but none of them output the bass to my reciever.

    Is there some check box or option somewhere to get the sub to work?

    Thanks

    Note: I have also tried using the digital out on the sound card and coax in on the reciever but then I dont get the center channel or really 5.1 unless I play a DVD. If playing a game with this setup I cant hear anything in front of me. So if anyone knows how to get 5.1 in games using the coax please let me know or if you know how to set up the 6 channels I can settle for that too.
