Need help with Asus Strix X99 audio and 5.1 channels

I would really appreciate if someone can help me with this setting issue. I have an Asus Strix X99 Gaming motherboard and a Sony recevier STR-DB780
I am trying to get the 5.1 channel to work. I set it up but when playing music just the front left and right speakers sound, no center nor the back ones and no subwoofer. On the receiver I have it as MULTI IN
When I make the sound test with the asus software, front left and right, back left and right are ok, center works like subwoofer, and subwoofer silent. I will attach the setup configuration trying to follow the manual.

I would appreciate very much any comments and advice

Thank you

Have you tried playing any media that was mixed in 5.1? To hear sounds from all speakrs you need to enable stereo simulation or play content thats mixed at 5.1

Yes I did, in fact used also the asus sound sofware to check speakers test sounds, and all sound except center and subwoofer that also seems to be wrong, tried changing the jacks, same thing. I had an EVGA X55 motherboard and a sound blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Pro and had it working, not 100% but I would get the 5.1

right click on the speaker down right ( windows ) and open volume mixer, press systemsounds, go to speakers, mark it and push config, mark 5.1 and go on from there.
see if that works.

switch the center and sub phono jacks, see if that can help.
do you have HDMI inputs on your surround amp?
