Default P6T Deluxe V2 and Soundmax question ...

Wasn't completely sure where to put this help message, figured it would be ok here ...

My sound works ok, only problem is that in 5.1 surround sound, my rear speakers don't work when listening to mp3s, cds, dvds, in games, youtube ... however when i use the soundMax utility and test my speakers, then they all work ... just not in programs and on the web ... i'm assuming it's some sort of driver problem, but just looking to get some info on the problem as i'm sure some of you have also had and can point me in the right direction .. thanks !!

this is normal

mp3 are not 5.1 sound, they are only 2 channel,

there is an option somewhere that allow you to "clone" the front speaker sound to the rear speaker when listening to 2 ch sound like mp3
