Vista - Surround (5.1) Support?
I can't set my audio card to play Surround sounds, I can only hear my 2 front
speakers... I tried setting it to Surround (from Control Panel > Speakers >
Configure > Next), but it's disabled (grey).

I'm running Windows Vista Ultimate, with an Audigy 2 Soundblaster (24-bit,
7.1).

If anyone has encountered this problem and knows how to solve it, please
help !!!

Have you tried the Creative beta drivers?

You have to download the Beta drivers from Creative and then set 5.1 or 7.1
within the creative control panel as well as through windows.
