    Surround Sound in Games
    I have just bought Logitech Z-5500 spekers. I also have a Club 3D Theatron Agrippa sound card (it supports DD and DTS). Everything works fine except the games. I can't get "true" surround sound in games. I can choose only between Digital Dolby ProLogic Music or Movie. I don't know how should I configure my settings in windows or sound card drivers to get surround sound working. Any ideas or suggestions?

    Thanks for help!
    Kind regards, Matic

    It would seem to me(based on any codec related audio stuff) that there should be some configuration or setup menu on the sound card to tweak the card for the surround or other speaker setups. The Logitech speakers are only the amplifying and reproducing side of the audio not the processing side, so the surround setting probably would not be there.

    Right now you current choices for audio would tell me you are in some sort of two channel mode, as that is when you only get the matrixed formats instead of the discrete multichannel ones as surround choices.

    Thanks for the fast reply!
    I tried it in COD 4...I set the Audio setting to 5.1 speaker setup and I can still choose only between DD PL modes. If I play a movie everything works fine...I get Digital Dolby od DTS and DD or DTS is written on LCD of my speakers and I also can't change the effect to DD PL Movie. Should it be like that in games too? In sound card drivers I also chose 6 CH input and it is still the same.
