    Hello all, im after some help/answers.

    I have a creative 5.1 soundblaster sound card in my desk top, and a X-540 5.1 chanel logitech sound system.

    My problem is, i have to have the audio on movies (i use nero showtime to play movies) when i have it set to 5.1 (as shown)

    and the computer sound settings in controll pannell set to 5.1

    but when i actually play the movies, i get all the.... ambiance and background sounds, but no speech, when the actors talk there lips move but no sound/very faint all exept for the ambiance.

    That's pretty typical when the center channel isn't working correctly, are you sure you are playing a 5.1 movie audio stream? I assume that its simulated Nero surround? I've never found a good simulated surround sound (unlike Dolby Headphone) in a small home theatre system so I wonder about that. Have you tried the Dolby Logic instead and is that same, better, worse?

    There's probably a diagnostic speaker level check utility there somewhere. Have you run that and determined the hookup is correct?

    Its hard to tell for sure, you may just have some setting or hookup that isn't quite right or you may be working cross purpose to what the audio stream you're working with is designed and capable of doing.
