    No surround on my 5.1 system


    Since upgrading my HTPC to Win 8 Pro 64 bit I cannot hear my surround speakers anymore. When I do the speaker config, the sound that is supposed to come from my surrounds is instead coming from my front right and front left speakers. I am using a GTX 460 GPU as my sound card. I have the latest NVIDIA driver installed (GeForce 306.97 Driver)

    I went back through my Onkyo receiver and made sure the speakers were all assigned properly and they are. Any ideas or advice here? Thanks in advance.
