  1. thats weird. my old asrock z97x Killer motherboard with onboard audio did it all on its own without me needing to change sth. Just had to activate a feature that "spread" the audio, and i got surround sound from my webbrowser. The ds is quite expensive here in germany. https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/531248-the-audio-boards-recommended-gear/ has the Dg linked/referenced in 5.1 soundcards. Have you used usb soundcards? or can you write sth about usb cards(bad or good)?
  2. i installed everything from msi directly. sad they only let you set equalizers via nahimic software and that cant achieve my "5channel stereo surround ", that i realy want . It would be realy stupid not to be able to listen youtube music on all my speakers in surround so i am searching for a proper soundcard so i must not use nahimic. currently i am using Equalizer APO software combined with the Peace project, but i have to change between setups as it wont play native 5.1 surround sound signals correctly. speakers are configured as 5.1 surround in windows as well. its just that nahimic is missing one feature.
  3. Hello, can someone recommend an external or if not at least a good internal soundcard? my msi b450 gaming pro carbon ac has a supposidly good sound card integrated but i cant use the default realtec software to configure my 5.1 surround sound.They force me to use nahimic software what dont let you choose a fake surround sound option(next sentence). Important to me is that i can listen to everything lets say my firefox browser playing music from youtube and the sound is played in a 5channel stereo setup if its not a native 5.1 sound stream. All those creative asus and other soundcards have some 1 star reviews on amazon that are stopping me from buying one. Please can anyone help me?
  4. [AUDIO WARNING, LOUD] Hello, just build a new pc with a red devi rx5700xt and got a problem. If windows turns off the display after the set duration for power saving matters, i get a corrupted signal via the hdmi port to my monitor. Only solution i found is to unplug and replug the hdmi cable. Second monitor connected via DP does not show any problems after wake up. Any one got an idea what is causing this problem? also after the last one, both displays stayed black even after disconnectiing both of them. but they came back after some time.... dont know whats going on. t_video5343898184852702560.mp4
  5. One question about one "problem" i have. Do i need to toggle manually between upmix and native surround? like youtube video playing music with upmixing turned on and then i listen to surround recorded media and i have to turn it off again? Or is there sth that does it for me? I thought it detects the channels an audio stream has and chooses to upmix or not
  6. oh wow. i love the community for those projects. this nahimic software is a big piece of crap. Those simple features got killed by stupid marketing. Realtek control center was perfect in doing the things simple and still got the job done. thx for responding to my question. i also intalled peace (https://sourceforge.net/projects/peace-equalizer-apo-extension/) which gives a nice gui. this makes things easier for me. anything you recommend for microphone settings on a headset that i sould keep in mind? i am quite a noob regarding audio things :'D
  7. Hello, i have a new PC and i am using a 5.1 surround setup. My old Asrock motherboard sound driver had a feature that i could use for "faking" surround sound, so all boxes are playing, if the source audio is only stereo( for example very important for me youtube playing in my firefox). Now I have a MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC and the sound driver is kinda dumb. First Realtek wont come with an classic control panel in the taskbar and second msi pushes nahimic for which reason i dont know. In nahimic you can select virtual surround sound for music etc but it does not affect the web browser. Is there any software addon or whatever that achieves my requirement for playing my firefox youtube audio stream "upmixed" as "5.1 surround sound"? Ps: an av receiver is not an option, i dont want to go crazy just to get a simple feature that already exists(or at least it did)
  8. ok i looked up the manuals. except for the msi one(and the asrock for obvious reasons), every manual describes the posibility to use all 3 jacks as audio out and even the front io for the side speakers. msi only mention 7.1 via front audio connector, nothing about 5.1, what is weird. so you dont have to buy adapters, to be able to connect a 5.1 sound system via 3x 3.5mm audio cables. why they dont include native support is a mystery for me, because there is nothing lost if you stack them 3x in a tower-like orientation. but i guess people dont use 5.1 on pc so much nowadays? but then to not give digital audio out for connection an av-receiver is lost oportunity for me.
  9. oh forgot to do that. it seems i cant close this topic. so i leave it open?
  10. sorry if my english is not understandable and confusing. but it seems to work already. But thanks for answering my question.
  11. it seems to work even if i did not activate it for the site(or is it not required anymore that a site asks specific for permission?)
  12. i would like to avoid using external usb sound cards, i dont know anyone that is working well. And i want to buy a dedicated GPU and not going the apu way. so i want to plug the 3 cables of my sound system into the mobo and use the front io connector to use my headset. if the thing written on tomshardware is correct and the sub/center are working correctly afterwards if you plug them in the third one i am happy. But i dont find any information about that. or i must buy the asrock one where the m.2 slot seems to be a problem because the temps are getting really high.
  13. Could you implement desktop notifications for the forum ?
  14. Hello there, i want to build myself a new pc, itx form factor to be precise. CPU will likely be a ryzen 2nd gen , ryzen 5 2600. Now i have a "old school" 5.1 sound setup, where my current motherboard has dedicated jacks for front, rear, and the center/sub combo jack. the following link is the price searching/comparing site (i live in germany but for the sake of writing english i switched to the uk variant) https://skinflint.co.uk/?cat=mbam4&v=e&hloc=de&hloc=uk&sort=t&xf=317_B450%7E326_7.1%7E4400_Mini-ITX So i looked for an itx board but to only see they claim to have 7.1 sound and only have 3 jacks(except the asrock but this seems to be not good(?)) https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/does-msi-b450i-have-7-1-audio.3372750/ here one does say it works if you plug the center/sub cable into the third jack and tell Realtek that it is a speaker. Does this work and does this work well? can you still use the front connector for a headset(mic and of course audio)(usb sound dongle would be fine if its only that problem)? or do i have to buy a shitty usb soundcard where there seems to not exist a good one.
  15. will we get any notification/ message if the giveaway is over and all the blades got shiped?
