I have a SoundMax HD audio card.  It uses jack sharing to output 5.1 audio.  Green= Surround, Blue= Front, Pink= Center/Sub.

However, it will only play from the speakers and not the sub.  I can go into the soundMax control panel and select swap center/subwoofer and then it will play everything except for the center channel.

Does anyone have any suggestions.

Do you have the latest drivers?

Try typing "dxdiag" (without the quotes) in the run box. Then run through the audio tests...

Oops, I figured it out :)

I'm using the AndrewLabs MP3 surround plugin for winamp, and I had forgotten to check "enable" on the LFE option.
Thanks anyway phototropic, points go to you :)
