[MPlayer-dev-eng] mplayer sets number of channels incorrectly

I sent this to mplayer-users but it hasn't got through, also this might be a
better list since the question is related to me poking around with the code.
I have a surround sound setup so when I play a 2-channel sound I'd like it to be
upmixed(just copy the channels, nothing fancy) alsa does this nicely for me.
However when I play a dvd or something with 5.1 sound mplayer downmixes it to 2
channels , I can get around this by passing mplayer "-channels 6" and it
correctly plays the file . the problem is that when I play a 2 channel file with
"-channels 6" mplayer sticks in blank channels which stops the upmixing from
happening..... Is there any way I can tell mplayer to just use the number of
channels from the file? Or do I just not understand what is going on?
