It's has already worked for someone running Win7 but you may need to do this first.

If you are running the latest realtek drivers and don't see the keys just add them(right click, new binary value).

YES Thank you very much, YupYup. This worked perfectly!

The new drivers are out and don't support jack reassignment. So you need to add the registry keys for it to work, after that you can edit them.

this **** still doesn't work.

On another thread i read this: "
Ok by some miracle i figured it out for those who have this problem just download the xp version of the drivers extract them run the xp version of the realtek control panel and disable front panel detection like usual i now have a fully working windows 7 system woooo!"

The only problem is: the XP .exe file won't install on vista/windows7
The seperate driver files won't install either because windows keeps saying "there is already a newer and better driver installed" ... What a ****load of ****

Using the realtek utility might also help.

I don't have that. I only have this, which looks totally different. And as I stated before, testing in this utility works perfectly for all 5 speakers but this is the only application where they work. everywhere else, only 2 speakers work.

Same Problem

Same Problem here exactly. games and the config tests works for all 5.1 speakers but on media player, winamp, bsplayer, basiclly everything just 2 speakers.

someone knows how to solve this problem once and for all?

nope. you'd be surprised how many things i've tried. i only got one solution but its fake. i downloaded the realtek.exe or whatever it was called that was from windows XP and ran it and then it let me do it but the only thing it let me do, was just use every single speaker as the front ones. so i got music out of all of them but it wasn't surround really, it was just like you'd use 5 speakers the same exact sound. which wasn't really that great compared to what i had on windows xp.

so i hope that the problem will be solved by a windows update or realtek update, i guess now there nothing much to do.
