Since I moved to XP home edition from 98, I can't get any sound out of the centre speaker of my Creative Soundblaster 5.1 DTT2200 set up. I normally use Power DVD for playback.
Creative have been very helpful and have sent me 10 emails so far: I've downloaded a 23MB upgrade, have downloaded a patch for Power dvd, have run every speaker check I can find and have sound from all 5 speakers. I've checked all connections, plugs, wires etc but still just get a slight hiss from the centre one. I've given them all the numbers from the soundcard and they say it should work.
Creative had suggested that I try different software for the dvd bit, but even CDs produce no centre sound. It all seems odd when it worked before the change: I know the plugs are in the right place in the back because I took a photo of the set up!
Does anyone else have any suggestions, please? It goes without saying that I've uninstalled/reinstalled both the Power DVD & Creative software.
