    Hello,
    So, as the title says, i can't get sounds from my sub-woofer in-game.
    When i run the surround test from the Switch menu, all 5 speakers AND the sub-woofer are working. But in game, the sub-woofer doesn't ouput anything.

    Before anyone gets out with some Dolby/DTS/Optical matters, this is what's known :
    - the Switch ouputs LPCM 5.1. It's a non compressed raw format (each channel seperately). Nothing to do with something Dolby/DTS.
    - LPCM 5.1, being a non compressed signal, it uses a very large bandwith. So it can't be carried by optical. Only HDMI.
    - my surround setup is fully working, test tone gives a signal through each 5 speakers AND the sub-woofer.
    - the Switch surround test gives a signal through each 5 speakers AND the sub-woofer.
    - the sub-woofer doesn't ouput in-game (tested with Starlink, Luigi's Mansion 3, Zelda BotW).
    - it's seems to be a bug that appeared in one of the last Switch update (Reddit/forums feedback).

    More than a solution, i'm looking for some other users' feedback about this issue (even if a solution would be welcome).

    Thank you.
