Make 5.1 sound card stereo
I have a 5.1 sound card (I think thi is the correct term it has side, rear, c/sub and main out outputs) but am only able to use a TV with stereo input as monitor/speakers.
The sound is kind of incomplete, I can hear parts of songs missing when I play them.
I have the osund set to Analogue Stere output but when I test the speakers only the right one works.
Is there anyway I can disable the other outputs and just have a stereo output?
The computer has a HDMI output but the sound from that doesn't work at all. Also I wasn't able to set the screen resolution to one that worked.
I'm running Ubuntu 11.04
This is the output I get from cat /proc/asound/cards
0 [SB ]: HDA-Intel - HDA ATI SB
HDA ATI SB at 0xfe024000 irq 16
1 [HDMI ]: HDA-Intel - HDA ATI HDMI
HDA ATI HDMI at 0xfdffc000 irq 19

- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
You should be able to set the preferences in your media player or the system sound tool to use stereo instead of 5.1 surround.Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
