Problem with 6.1 speakers

I've recently bought a system with a Sound Audigy 2 sound card and 6.1 speakers. Everything is linked up and when I test the speakers each channel is working. But when I play a game/audio CD or DVD it's only the front 4 speakers that work. There's just a hiss coming from from the rear left/right and centre.
Am I forgetting something very basic here?
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Is your DVD software set up to use 6.1 channels?

What about sounds and multimedia in the control panel? under hardware / advanced, there should be an option for 6.1 sound.
