    Hey all, I'm wondering if there is a way to control a surround sound system that I have my macbook (blackbook) hooked into. I know you can control the left and right speaker level via the 'Sound' controls in preferences but the rear speakers are really quite and I would like to turn up the volume.

    Is there some software (preferably free) that would let you have more control?

    I'm not sure that the MacBook supports any type of surround sound, much less 5.1. If you want that type of capability you'll need to invest in a compatible external USB/Firewire sound card. I think they can be had for under a hundred dollars.
