    DP35DP, Windows 7 RTM, No 5.1 surround sound




      My DP35DP (Bios latest 0572) with installed Windows 7 x64 RTM does not play 5.1 surround sound in Media Player, Winamp, Media Center, VLC, etc.

      With the integrated Windows driver and among the sound/speakers setup in control panel all speakers working fine. Also in Media Center Setup all speakers working separately. But I have no 5.1 sound when I play music etc. I also tried the Windows Vista x64 Audio: IDT* 92XX Driver (No Intel driver available for Windows 7 x64), here the same problem: only stereo sound.


      Thank you in advance!

          This may not help much, but I have the same issue with the DX58S0 and Win 7, so maybe it's something to do with Win 7?  I installed new drivers for it dated 8/5/2009 and the same problem remains.  Like you said, it plays the *tests* fine, through all speakers using the sound applet in control panel and the Realtec control center, but when using any audio player it only plays through the fronts and sub.  Games that support 5.1 still only use 2.1 as well.  I'm still searching for a solution!

            Same thing here, tests fine, but most times not even stereo, much less 5.1

            Please someone shed some light on either what to do or when to expect some new drivers.
