Greetings forum.

As the title alludes to, I am using Linux Lite 1.0.4 and I am having problems getting the sound to work properly.

My sound card is a PCI - "Creative Labs, Sound Blaster Live 5.1" surround sound card, and the problem is, I cannot get sound from anything other than the front speakers.

I have tried adjusting the options in the sound preferences - Menu> Multimedia> Audio Mixer (and) PulseAudio Volume Control and I have also opened the Terminal and, using the alsamixer command, I have confirmed the settings for the sound card.
Still, no sound in the rear speakers.

At this point, I am all out of ideas - most likely due to my limited skill set - so if anyone has any suggestions, I am humbly open to suggestions.

Thank you in advance.
