If you own a Titanium Hd would you please test something out for me, i'd appreciate it alot.
Turn all dts/dolby/digital features off. Open up windows sound options and set the speaker mode to 2/2.1 speaker mode.
Open up Creative's console launcher, first of all switch it to Entertainment mode, followed by switching to game mode, speaker config - select headphones and turn on X-fi CMSS-3D. Bear in mind you're now in headphone mode, or at least think you are.
Go back to windows sound settings and check your speaker configuration, what does it say? 5.1?
Before you think, ah it's because I enabled cmss-3d, it isn't. If I now switch to Audio creation mode, turn on bitmatched playback, speaker mode 2/2.1 speaker, head back into windows sound options, it still reads 5.1
Does it make a difference if creative's console launcher is set to headphones/2.1 and windows reports 5.1?
