    Volume KNOB!!!!

    Well I have tried many ways to make it easy for volume tuning!!!

    I have wired an external POT (Volume Knob) to an EQ.. but now I want to control 6 channel's sound without needing 2 or 3 Volume Knobs!!!

    I have an old Sound Blaster Extigy! has a HANDY Volume Knob at the Front.

    but when I use 6 channel audio I have only 2.1 speakers when playing music in Frodoplayer..

    Does anyone know where I can get and use a Sound Mapper to recreate the Stereo Signal in the Front & the Back.

    DVD in Power DVD work great with 5.1

    anyone else have this problem.. what did you do to resolve?

    thanks guys

    in windows... control panel... then sound setup.. somewhere theres like an advanced tab or button.. where you can select the amount of speakers in the car... that usually turns them on for me...

    Is it easy to get an external POT like knob, with a push action as well (you know how some car stereos turn on when you push the knob, not turn it)?

    i'm using a phidget usb rotary encoder to control the master volume. it has a push button too where you could code that to change between the different speakers so you'll have the ability to 'fade' the volume.
