Surround not working

i downloaded a surround test file to hear the surround but the rear speakers and subwoofer are not working.
In the software testing sound everything works the way it should be. Just like the internal test sound of the set i bought.
I need 5.1 video's to work as well. why are these not working, but the testing itself is working?

Please include the exact Dell model in your System Specs.

Surround sound is a function of the media file and of the media player.
