Hey guys!

Ive got a problem.

My Headphones are set up to 7.1 and I tried every settings, but on Testsites like https://www2.iis.fraunhofer.de/AAC/multichannel.html it's only playing 2 Channels.
And it worked before!

I recently installed Equalizer APO and hesuVi to improve the directional audio, and there is also a 7.1 Soundtest, which only plays 2 Channels for me ! I had it working with those programs too (every channel was played). I now reinstalled Windows 10 and it is still not working.

Iam using the Realtek Driver + Software from the Windows installation (always used it, so no change).

Things I tried lately, before reinstalling, was to install Peace Equallizer and to change the registry Values to have the Windows Audio Equalization within my Equalizer APO.

But reinstalling (Keeping personal files) should have make everything working again, am i right?



Hope you can help me guys, I don't know what to do! Iam grateful for every help :)



EDIT: Found the problem (more or less).
I installed a wrong (older) HeSuVi program, really weird to explan,
but for everyone who is itnerested in this download the program by clicking on the "HeSuVi Setup" Link in the beginning of the Tutorial! :)

Question from hendrik.seemann : "7.1 Config only plays Stereo Channels"

hesuVI takes 7.1 and converts it to binaural stereo for headphones. That gives you the directional cues of 7.1 but there are only 2 channels going to the headphones. Maybe that's the problem?
The headphones would need to have a speaker for each channel and be either USB or have 4 3.5mm stereo plugs to actually be 7.1

Thank you americanaudiophile for the answere :)

That actually makes sense, but, I was able to hear those 7 Channel tests before, and now Iam not anymore.
The 7.1 Soundtest within HesuVi was my Test and I always could hear every channeldirection, and suddenly that stopped, also for
the Realtek, Windows and HesuVi test and also those olnine ones.

I find that really weird! And I really don't know what else I changed.
