    Hey guys!

    I want to set my control panel to 5.1 but my console to 2.1 so all games output 5.1 sound but X-Fi CMSS3D mixes is down to stereo with positional effects. Right now every time I change either control panel or console setting, the other one gets overridden automatically. I dont like that.


    Also, how to get the "shiny" console like this?
    All I have is that little boring white and green box on Win7. It looks ugly and it seems to miss some options, like EQ and other settings.

    just go to regedit and
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432NODE\Creative Tech\Speaker Selection

    change NoShow to 0

    Thank you. What exactly does this setting do? What does it "noShow"?

    HKEY_local machine?

    I was there but I can not find any "speaker selection".

    Looks like this:

    Huh, I see, a registry value has been created now. Now reboot? What is going to happen? What will be the change?

    Hm, the control panel and the console are still linked, when I switch to 2.1 in console it goes to stereo in control panel, although its supposed to stay at 5.1 in control panel. dammit.

    I have to go to bed, will check tomorrow again, see you!

    Is it still possible to unlink the X-fi settings from Windows 7 with the latest PAX?

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432NODE\Creative Tech\Speaker Selection

    Does not exist.

    Why not to set 5.1 speakers in Control Panel and uncheck missing speakers (e.g. rear and center) instead?

    I want to have windows set to 5.1 so that Games will output that but X-fi panel use CMS3D in 2.1 just like the thread starter.

    that:
    was workaround for the issue. Game will see 5.1 speakers, but windows will see that you have only 2.1 speakers and send sound only to existing speakers
