Stereo sound through whole 5.1 speaker set - is it possible with WinXP or 7?

Stereo sound through whole 5.1 speaker set - is it possible with WinXP or 7?

Is it possible to "upmix" (split) stereo output from games, winamp, youtube and so on through 5.1 speaker set? Movies from DVD or some games uses all 6 speakers, but most of today's usage does not.

"As Skelly says, it would depend on your driver.

For me, it's this setting:"

"If your hardware has a 5.1 output path, the upmix will be supported.

If you are wiring your audio output to external equipment through a stereo path,
you will be limited to that."
