Why do I only get two channels from Sound Blaster Z?

Last Modified: 2020-03-21
I have a Sound Blaster Z installed in my computer and have connected the orange, black and green out to the Logitech inputs.   When I test the speakers using the Sound Blaster Speaker Setup and try to test the 5.1 configuration, only the two front speakers emit sound.   I am using Windows 10 Pro.
