    I recently got my Firewave and I installed it like it says inside the case but it seems im not getting 5.1 sound.. when I goto the "Audio Midi Setup" and goto multichannel and test the speakers they all come up fine but when i play a song through itunes or watch a movie in iDVD its still 2.1:confused: anythin im doin wrong?

    Is both the content and the playing software 5.1?

    The Firewave won't turn stereo source material into 5.1...
