Sound Blaster Surrond 5.1 External USB on Leopard, only 2 channel :(

Discussion in 'Soundblaster Live' started by Erik De Martiis, May 7, 2008.

  1. I hope someone can help me :)
    This is the question, i Have bought a SB surrond 5.1 USB for ADD to my
    Macmini G4 1.25 (Leopard 10.5.2) an Optical Output and use 5.1 system

    This is the product

    Midi setup recognize the SB, and recognize the 6 channel configuration,
    but the sound is only STEREO. If I try to test the "center" o
    "right/left rear channel" and "Subwoofer" my Home System Surrond are
    Mute :(

    A film in DTS plays perfectly by Apple DVD player, but sound are only
    Stereo, and using VLC is the same.

    I have bought this product because i have read some site that says that
    SB LIVE works great on Mac Os X, but SB Live in out of production now,
    and the subtistute is SB Surround 5.1 that i think is a little

    Any ideas? or i have to bought a M-Audio?


    My system surrond is OK, with iMac Intel with integrated optical output
    the 5.1 is perfect.
