How do I change my Asus Xonar soundcard audiochannels to 5.1?

I do have a Xonar AE Asus soundcart on a Win11/64 PC running. When I play a simple stereo sound I only hear the sound on the front speaker. 

How can I change the setting in order to hear the sound on ALL audio channels (front, rear, etc) ? The soundcard is set to 5.1 already but has no effect.

 

Thanks for the answers!

The content you play has to be decoded in surround sound. Generally music is recorded in stereo only. Some games offer true 5.1 / 7.1 surround sound (as opposed to virtual). Try playing a movie (using an appropriate player).
