I just bought a Genuis 5005 5.1 audio system, and I have an issue with it: It won't work properly when I get on the Internet (the central speaker isn't working).

I also bought an Asus Xonar DG 5.1 sound card which works perfectly. I installed it and also installed the driver for it.

When I play music/videos from my hard drive, all the speakers work fine, but when I connected to Internet to play videos/music, the center speaker won't work.

How can I fix this issue?

It is very possible that the quality of the streamed audio is not great enough to support the 5.1 setup that you have. Meaning it was only coded to support a 2 channel audio, not 5.
