I have surround sound set up on my computer, but because I am using 3 separate speakers the default 5.1 channels do not work properly. I want to override the default 5.1 configuration so that whenever I play surround sound with any program it automatically uses my re-routed configuration instead of the normal one. I want to reroute the channels the following way:
Channel 0 (left front) to sound card channel 0
Channel 1 (right front) to sound card channel 1
Channel 2 (left rear) to sound card channel 2
Channel 3 (right rear) to sound card channel 3
Channel 4 (center) to sound card channels 4 and 5
Channel 6 (subwoofer) to sound card channels 0, 1, 2, and 3
I’ve tried various things but nothing seems to get it to work.
I am using opensuse 11.1, and my sound card is an audigy 2 zs notebook. My physical speaker configuration is as follows:
The front channels are connected to a 2.1 speaker
The rear channels are connected to a different 2.1 speaker
The center/subwoofer(LFE) channels are connected to a 2.0 speaker.
That is why I am trying to send the center channel to both the center and subwoofer/LFE channel and why I am trying to send the subwoofer channel to both the front and rear channels (since that is where the subwoofer is).
While I am at it, having the left stereo channel go to the left front and left rear channel and having the right stereo channel go to the right front and right rear channel automatically would be nice, but not as important.
