This occurs when you are in the Digital Output Only mode and the sources left-right balance in a software mixer application other than Surround Mixer (for example, the Windows Volume Control application) is at the opposite end compared to the position to which you have panned the source in the Main panel of Surround Mixer. For example, the CD Audio balance in Windows Volume Control is on the left but in Surround Mixer you have panned the CD Audio to the right. To solve this problem: Open that other mixer, and center the balances for all the audio input sources. This ensures that your analog sources will not turn silent when you pan them in Surround Mixer.
