  1. ive got intel DG31PR motherboard,which has realtek ALC888 sound onboard...ive got a 5.1 speaker setup and i can play DVDs with 5.1ch audio fine,get sound on all the speakers...but with stereo files like mp3 songs,i only get sound on the front 2 speakers,i need to upmix it...how do i do that????

    there is no such option in the realtek control panel and ive got the latest drivers.

    if you dont have the option, u can always try to use filter codec, such as ffdshow decoder, which is capable of doing that. i strongly suggest you to get K-lite codec pack, beside the vast availability of codecs installed, ffdshow is also included, to improve my music performance, and lot of things.

    what media player are you using?

    well, speaker fill works pretty good.
    k-lite doesnt work in WMP in vista and win7...
