    I use this for my HTPC and it is great but cannot now that I have upgraded to Windows 11 as /setspacial no longer works.
    Do you plan to update /setspacial to work for win-11?

    Is there any way to get the svcl command to do a “/setspatial” like command, but to set “Speaker setup (Stereo)”, “Speaker setup (5.1)”, and “Speaker setup (7.1)”? This is crucial when trying to use high-end AV equipment, and your video source may sometimes not have 5.1 data, and you want to use your own receiver to “convert” it to 5.1 sound.
