    actually hes trying to make his volum control front and rear channels. which it should. if hes going to be watching movies he might want front and rears. A Y splitter from the front would band-aid what he needs instead of fixing the software issue. like i said it would work but he would no longer have a rear channel, only right and left. if its acceptable to him so be it. I personally would figure out whats really wrong and fix it.

    you need to get a sound card that has a rear output so you can control front and rear sound level. any surround card will do that

    Thanks guys, but none of this works...

    My speakers are set up correctly in the advanced settings... Four Quadrophonic Speakers. I tried 5.1 setup, but it didnt sound right and it still didnt fix it. So that didnt work....

    And yes, a Y-Splitter is out of the question. I want to have four channels, and I cant believe that something so simple is so hard to do? I would think this would be a standard thing to do? Lower both sets of speakers at the same time? If I had a four speaker setup in my house on a desktop I would want the same thing.....

    keep in mind that the only advantage of 4 channels is for dvds, and if you ever play a dvd with passengers, they arent going to be happy with only hearing the rear output in the back

    Its the on-board sound for my Gigabyte mobo. I believe it uses the AC97 Realtek hardware.

    That is a good point. But I personally think that it would be better to have 4 seperate channels for DVDs and such anyway.... Having Surround Sound in the car is just a very cool thing for me

    ----

    The best solution I've found is a program called "VolumeTracker". It does exactly what I want it to do, whenver the front speaker volume gets adjusted, it matches the rear speaker volume. However, whenever I reboot the program doesnt save the changes and the default is to match the Fronts to the Wave volume.... Not the Rear volume.... I emailed the guy who wrote the program and he said he's working on it but he is on vacation at the moment. So in the mean time, Im looking for another solution.

    Dont most of the people on here have 4 channel set ups?
