    Maximus V Gene Win10 Realtek surround failure

    I just noticed that Win10 won't work correctly with the onboard audio in 5.1 mode. It won't put sound through the rear speakers. However if I set it to 7.1 those same speakers function jsut fine as side speakers. I've removed and reinstalled the audio driver but no luck. Anyone else running into this?

    What build of w10 are you guys on? I'm asking bc. it seems MS has fixed some issue with realtek audio on insider preview build 10547, so maybe that fixes it...

    from the rel. notes 10547:
    We have fixed several issues with audio – including issues specific affecting Realtek audio devices.
    if you are on 10240 and have not applied for insider preview builds nor want to, just wait for th1 to be released somewhere start of november.
