Default Windows 7 loss of Left/Right balance control?

I watch a lot of movies off of youtube. But most are dual audio with Cantonese in left, and Mandarin in right. On youtube it turns out all mixed unless I select left/right. But ever since I went to 7.1 speakers I can't figure out how to get it working with Windows 7. Because I used to plug my regular PC speakers and set them as headphones I was able to use that simple slider. But Now its not there. Any tips?

win7 should manage it.. it's more button clicks compared to XP was.

- right click speaker icon
- select playback devices
- highlight your output device
- click properties
- click the levels tab
- in play control, click the balance button on the right side

from here you should be able to mix all of the discrete channels independently.
