Windows 7: Realtek HD Audio, no 5.1 sound through front ports

14 Feb 2010   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate (x64)
Realtek HD Audio, no 5.1 sound through front ports

HP Pavilion M2N68-LA MB running Realtek HD/ALC888.

I have installed the updated Realtek drivers, but when I plug My headset to RCA into the Front Audio port, I have no option to change the headset settings to 5.1 sound. Upon Jack detection, I tell it that they are Front speakers, but the Speaker setting change nothing, and the controls for the headset do. Since the TV I am using is a Sony Trinitron Projection Flat Screen with 5.1 Surround SRS sound, this makes a kindda bottled sound come out. Also, with some movies I run it also removes the voices in the sound this way.
Is there a HKEY code to fix not having 5.1 sound options in the headset mode, or am I stuck running the TV from the rear, removing the Computer speakers when I want to watch from the TV?
