As mentioned in the header, is there a way to playback music (and films) in 5.1 in Windows? I can route all the channels in Cubase, but I'd like to listen to my 5.1 exports in some audio player (foobar, PowerDVD) and hear it in 5.1. Even if I set PowerDVD to 6 channels it either flips back to stereo when I play something or it stays on 6 channels, but still only hear stereo.
One thing that draws my attention is also that I can only select stereo setups in the Windows Playback Devices. Main Out, Line Out 1/2, 3/4 etc. Any solutions here? Thanks!
