Hello.

I've recently purchased the Roccat Kave 5.1 Surround Sound Headset. (Not virtual)

It works off the presets of your Sound card (You need a 5.1 or higher) - Since I have a 7.1 I decided to buy it.

 

When I plug it in - I can't hear anything.   If I go into Windows Sound settings and set it to speakers.  I can hear it all.  I've set the Speakers config to 5.1 but I know this is only a temporary solution.

Anyone know how to get the Realtek Sound output working?

 

All  the jacks are in the right port - Additional ports in the back (Because of 7.1) but anyway  of getting it working?

 

Also another issue - Happened with previous headset.

All sound is inverted. So if I wear the headset correctly (L-Cup for Left ear, R-Cup for right ear)

 

Everything is opposite way which really screws you over in FPS games.  All I can do is just rotate my headset around to hear perfectly but yet again - That's only a temporary solution and I'd prefer to fix it but I cannot find any settings to rotating it.

The software is Realtek Sound Manager.

 

My Sound card is:

Realtek ALC885 for 8CH HD Audio in Bernstein card
