technically, they are correct. But do you want to change the settings every time you do something different?

Also, that is a standard message, that doesn't really apply when in Vista...your settings in the Xonar control panel also change the settings within this is what Vista shows as active channels, so enabling 8 channels(7.1) isn't going to really add anything for you, except for cpu time, as the extra channels are downmixed to your set-up...

Likewise..selecting 6 channels, and then going to headphone on the output side, will see gull surround downmixed to 2 channel. That panel is your access to configure how the sound will be encoded...for analogue speakers, it's not so important, but it far different if using the coaxial connection.
