    There's the link tot he manual. It's Appendix 2, on page 73.

    Oh, and I was wrong about the daughter card. Sorry about that.
    How about you settle down a bit! Geeeees, all **** like this is going to do is scare off new members. If you feel that someone asked a stupid or easy question then either answer it or politely tell them to search.

    The is absolutely no need to sprout bs like this.

    i dont care, im used to forums, and when ur on one for a while and people ask questions that u feel are retarded its easy to want to vent. but this was posted under the NEWBIE category and he should learn that there are going to be some people that just dont know s**t, i saw a post on someone who asked what a head unit was and no one flipped out on him like this, some people just need to calm down and if they dont have something helpful to add then just dont add anything just my .02

    The Epia M10000 lets you change the three ports(Line In, Line out, Mic) to 5.1 Surround. It is done in the Software(XP), not in the bios(I think). If you are running XM with the XM direct box, you can't run 5.1.

    Also:
    You can't run Navivoice, it requires a MIC, your MIC line will be an output now...

    Here's why:
    THe line out on the XM has to go into a line in, somewhere. If you take the existing Line in and change it to output, you will have no place to get sound from your XM direct. It is up to you, of course.

    You could:
    Buy an external SB audigy(USB) that has line in, line out, Mic, 5.1 out, etc.. But I bleive some people are having problems with these....

    It is clearly stated in the manual, how to set up 5.1.
    Unless you plan on watching DVDs, 5.1 is pretty useless...(in my humble Opinion, aka IMHO).

    Good luck in your search, I hope this helps.

    You may try searching using terms like 5.1+EPIA or surround+EPIA.

    The search feature works pretty good here.

    i agree, and thanx for the info
    didn't even think about voice commands with the nav (is it any good? the one on my avic-n1 blows) i might have to look into a seperate audio card then, i dont really care about having the 5.1 deal, i just need three outputs to control my front, rear, and sub

    Question 5.1

    Well apart from DVD's which are encoded with 5.1, how would one go about getting music onto all speakers in the car without some form of splitter box??

    As you may have read in my other thread I'm trying CS II but it's very unreliable..

    Is watching DVD's in 5.1 really that good in a car??

    well if uve ever watched a dvd in a car ull notice that the background noise and music always seems to overpower the dialogue, i would assume that actually having 5.1 with using a center channel would fix that

    Well as far as getting sound to all 4 spkr you can either use a y adapter on your RCA out, or add in an external eq. or active crossover. If you do some searching you can find one that will give you fade and ballance control. Hope that helps,
    Install { 50% } Complete for now.
    But stable and running happily

    i could go the route of the eq, but i like having all of the control on the screen, its simple enough to do

    Still on topic but I'll try not to hijack the thread too much..

    Well will be putting in a small centre speaker at both front and back, small tweeters made just for voice.

    Will hook up front L + R to green port on PC, enable the 5.1 in my audio settings, use the SPDIF card which has RR and RL outputs, also Centre + sub channel. I'll run these to the amp then back out of the amp into the centre channel amp, but this is all easy..

    Is there any way of tricking media player into distributing the sound to all 6 speakers not just the front two??

    Or do you just use the Y splitters and not get the proper surround?
