[ubuntu] Soundblaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio Problems

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, I am having trouble getting my Soundblaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio sound card working in Ubuntu. When I first installed it, it kept stuttering and stopping. After following a few different "fixes" and forum posts, I managed to stop it from stuttering. I then proceeded to connect my PC up to a 5.1 speaker system. When I went in to the settings to change the device from 2.0 to 5.1, I checked the 'Test Sound' button, and the test sound only plays out of the rear two speakers, and the centre speaker. I have seen many forum posts and blogs saying that ALSA doesn't support this car (Hardware)
