If you got stereo ac3, that means either (a) the headers mencoder
writes are bogus and it's really 5.1 -- no need to worry! or (b) you
selected the stereo-only channel by mistake and need to use -aid to
select the proper 5.1 audio track instead. In any case you definitely
should not use -ac hwac3 with mencoder...
