Hope this helps-
To set up 5.1 surround sound using the Realtek HD
Audio Manager have a look at this short Youtube video: Windows 7 / Realtek HD Audio Manager: How to Set Up 5.1 Sound to The Best Parameters - YouTube
I'm gonna have to do some research on the other (getting realtek to show
in the Notification Area Icons). I have just noticed that I am facing the
same issue and can't see it listed there, which of course makes it very hard to
add it to the system tray.
I have 2 printer icons in that list also (1 which says Update Tray- update in progress which doesn't change and one that says Windows Explorer which I'm not to worried about as I'd say this is the print queue).
I also have what looks like a Network icon for Windows Media Center which if I change to show icon and notifications gives me the message "This notification Icon is not currently active). Is this normal does anyone know?
I also have what looks like yet another Network icon with Windows Host Process (Rundll32) which I am worried about. Note that both the Media Center and Windows Host process listings look like they have a small yellow portion on what I have explained looks like the Network icon.
Note that all of these are occuring in the Notification Area Icons LIST and not in the system tray itself.
Any advice or information to ease my panicky little self would be helpful.
I'll start searching tomorrow cause I needs me some rest right now. Attachment 185961
