Cant get ANY surround sound working, any ideas?

I have tried previous suggestions of setting my local pc to 5.1 and leaving my shadow pc on stereo setting (cant be changed) This, however,  just outputs the front right and left channels to the rear speakers, not true surround sound. I've also tried a Creative Soundblaster external usb sound card to convert 5.1 PC to Dolby digital and activated it as a usb device in shadow, but this does not work either.


Further to that, Windows sonic and Atmos for headphones seem to not work correctly. I have tried activating on both Shadow and my local pc and there is no effect at all.

Other than using Steam Link, has anyone managed to get ANY form of surround sound, with the correct 5.1 channels using their shadow either on Windows or Android? Or even any kind of of surround virtualisation? I love this service but this is the one and only issue frustrating me at the moment!

Unfortunately, I do not believe this is possible on Shadow at the moment. They might introduce it in the future, but it is likely not at the top of their priority list at the moment.
