Question about Dynex DX-SC5.1 Sound Card

1 Answer

Only getting 2 speakers working, not 5.1 surround

I have this card connected to a pioneer vsx-818v-k with an optical digital audio cable. I'm only getting sound out of 2 speakers. I've tested the pioneer's surround setup, and I have all the speakers connected correctly. WTF???

    I am having the same problem. When I was using the Dynex card with Vista, the dolby digital worked. Now that I decided to run xp instead, for many reasons, manly because Vista is a pig and the computer had a hard time running it, i only get 2 speaker output through the digital output. I have it set to dolby digital in the audio control panal. I am not running the audio program that came with the card. I tried it first, set it to dolby digital 5.1 and had the same problem. I ran microsoft update and there was a new driver. Installed that. Audio program would not work so I unistalled it. Now I have 2 speaker sound but no dolby digital. Any suggestions??

Hi,how do I connect up two 5.1 surround sytems to my PC Pavilion m9451ch I know all I need is a 3.5mm RCA jack into the amplifier and connect them up with the outlets on my computer this is OK for one but...


First, you need a sound-card in your computer that is capable of '5.1' operation.

Second, you need a receiver/amplifier that accepts '5.1' input.

This is usually achieved by a "optical digital" output on the computer's sound-card,
an "optical digital' connection cable, and an "optical digital" input on the amplifier.

Connect Creative 5.1 A500 speaker system to Phillips DVD 3256


moz-screenshot.jpg 2d65f17.jpg
Just buy two connectors(shown above). Its having two holes upside.
1. Connect the connector to one hole of the other.
2. Connect the audio cable to the dvd.
3. Then connect the connectors to the other side of the audio cable.
4. Lastly, connect the three stereo output cables of the Creative speakers to the three holes of the connector simultaneously.
I have tried this at home with my Creative Inspire M5300 speakers and philips dvd. All the five speakers are working.

No sound from 5.1 surround system


If you're connecting a "5.1 surround system" to a single jack that you plug your headphones into, it's not going to work. Headphone jack is Stereo, 2 speakers. You need at least 3 input jacks for 5.1, plus one for the subwoofer. If you don't have these, you'll have to buy an add-on card.

Can i use 4.1 speakers for my hcl p2102 laptop?


Hi,
U can use 4.1 speakers with HCL P2102 by connecting stereo pin splitter in Line out and then connecting front and rear spkers.

But U will not get 4.1 surround sound effect as sound card supports 2.1 spkers only, so it is advisable to connect good 2.1 spkers.

How do you set up surround sound for DVD playback in windows xp?


Do you have 5.1 speakers? Becouse you need to plug in all the 5.1 speakers to the differnt ports on your soundcard. If you only have 2 speakers you wont be able to get the 5.1 surrond sound your after and it will default to 2 speakers. If you do have 5.1 speakers then you will need to check the option in the control panel in the M-Audio window. It has an option for 5.1 surround. If your software cannot play 5.1 surround them get some other software that can.
