I have a Creative Soundblaster Live! Dolby Digital setup. For some reason, the setting goes from 5.1 speakers to 2 speakers without me even touching the settings. I frequently have to change it back to 5.1 speaker setting.

If anyone has this speaker setup, I would like to know if you have the same problems.
