5.1 surround speaker system...


i have a 5.1 philips surround speaker and 5.1 soundcard of apache.
i hear great sound and bass from windows but i can not hear any bass from my subwoofer and no sound from 5th center speaker from linux.
only right and left front/back speakers gives sound..
the sound is very bad comparison to windows.
is there a way to make them fully work?

If you use KDE you can try to change the settings in kmix. Try everything there and you should be ble to get both subwoofer and Center-speaker working

You have to play an audio or video file that has 6 channels encoded or else you will not get 6 channels of output. Only two channels will be used. I suggest using alsamixer instead of kmix.

If you want to get 6 channels of output with a DVD movie
mplayer -ao alsa:device=surround51 -channels 6 dvd://

If you want to get 6 channels of output with an AVI file with 6 channels encoded (AC3)
mplayer -ao alsa:device=surround51 -channels 6 myfile.avi

If you want to get fake 6 channel output from a 2 channel source, you have to add a ttable code in ~/.asoundrc. I have posted some examples which gives good results. Go to http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=240677.
