I just bought a new set of Creative 7.1 speakers and installed. I set my Creative settings for 7.1 , but I can't get Winamp 5.1 to play 5.1. It will only play in 2.1 mode. I have set the Plug-ins/Output to SoundBlaster Live 24Bit. Don't know what else to do. Also I have PowerCinema so I played StarWars III in full 7.1 sound no probs after setting Audio to 7.1. What gives? Is it because SB Live 24 is set to 7.1 that winamp5.1 can't understand that? In the configure output page (Winamp): speaker set-up was listed as unknown. :suspiciou TS Thomas was going to write a guide on winamp plug-ins but I don't see it, nor anything with my winamp search here that answered my question. Thanks if anyone can help.
