UR824 - 5.1 surround in Windows 10

Hi,

I am wondering if you can set the playback device to 5.1 in Windows 10 (latest update) for UR824.
As of now, in Windows Audio Devices I have one Line Output that offers only 2ch of playback.

I am talking about playing surround materials and applications in Windows, not in a DAW (as Nuendo is working as it should).

I have read on this forum and have found a workaround using JRiver Media Center.
But still, I miss having the option to use 5.1 surround applications (such as VLC, games, VR-media) over Windows 10 as I could over OSX.

Is there a solution to this problem or should I get used to the aforementioned workaround?

Thanks in advance!

You can try https://www.vb-audio.com/Voicemeeter/index.htm. It can use your sound card and make surround materials play in surround in VLC and other softwares.

Did you ever get this figured out? I'm surprised that the UR driver doesn't offer more channels for the WDM driver in Win...

Update:

The UR series does not have a WDM driver that supports multi-channel use, which was disappointing to not have. The RME interfaces do.
