hi guys, i bought a set of logitech x530s and im having trouble getting all of the speakers to work.
i have a 5.1 surround card in my pc.
i connect all the colour coded plugs , but only the front 2 speakers are working.
i have changed the options in control panel to play 5.1 surround sound. when i individually test each speaker, all of them work.
but when i play a song on my pc, only the front 2 speakers will work.
hope someone can help, thanks

Yea, things like Media Player etc will only play stereo sound out as stereo speakers. You need to get some kind of plugin that surrounds it. I think there was one called SRS or something like that.

SRS plugin is included with WMP but it'll be turned off by default.
