Pimax 8KX sound configuration with Dirt Rally 2.0?

So it seems the 8KX requires you to set it to ‘7.1’ under Windows sound settings to get any audio to come through the headset.

The problem I have now encountered is Dirt Rally 2.0 co-driver audio is sent through a centre channel and I do not hear it through my headset. All other sound such as music, engine noises, and ambient effects come through just fine. Not being able to hear co-driver directions makes the game much more difficult and much less enjoyable.

The recommended way to get co-driver audio is to switch sound settings from surround to stereo. But I cannot do this with the Pimax headset as then audio does not work at all. How do I resolve this? Does anyone have this working?
