    Does anyone know of a setting in Winamp 2x where I can get it to play music thru all of my speakers on my 5.1 speaker system? Winamp 3 plays it just fine in 5.1....:(

    hmm, mine works fine on both.

    Try going to.. "Sounds and Audio Devices Properties" by either right clicking the sound icon in your taskbar and going to "Adjust Audio Properties" and if you don't have the icon in your taskbar goto Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices

    Now once there, click on Advanced... in the Speaker settings box

    Now goto the drop down box and make sure it's at 5.1 surround sound speakers.

    Preferences > Plugins > Output > waveOut
    change that to your Sound card
    Preferences > Plugins > Output > DirectSound
    and change that to your sound card as well, then it should be able to use your sound card drivers and then 5.1 should work right.
