Also if there any options for "CMSS" or "Virtual speakers" (within creatives console) if so enable it. lol unfortunately getting full 5.1 can be troublesome if you're not using a digital cable and an encoder card.
I found this extract from another website.
Connecting a PC's 2 Channel Stereo Analog output:
If your PC or Laptop only has stereo output (2 Channel Left / Right) you can still simulate the 5.1 experience via your Z-5500. You need to first set the toggle switch at the back of the Control Center from 6 Channel Direct to Stereo 1-3. You then plug in the stereo mini-plug coming from your laptop to any of the 3 (now stereo) input jacks at the back of the Control Center. You have to enable this input by selecting it from the Control Center's Input options. You can then simulate Dolby 5.1 (for Movies or Music) by selecting Pro Logic II (PLII) Movies or Music under Effects in the Control Center.
^^ I'm confused with that.
