Hi, I have a onboard Hd realtek audio device. Now my issue is, when I play ANY game, as soon as the game loads, I loose my subwoofer sound. I have a 5.1 altec lansing sound system. everything else works, BUT the sub. I have a button on my remote which enables/disables 5.1 and just gives front speakers, and when I do that, the front works and my subwoofer comes back on. Now I tested my 5.1 with mediaplayer and winamp.. when playing a CD or movie.. everything is fine... But as soon as I load a game, I loose the sub, the 5 channels still work in surround, just no bass. I updated the drivers, I have the right ones for the HD realtek, I have the windows HD audio driver update also. When I run the test with my realtek sound utility, I can test every channel (5.1) correctly. What can cause this problem?? I know its not my games because i've tried about 6 of them and they all do the same thing. I also have updated audio codecs. Everything is connected properly also.
