Hallo all,

 finally I got my Audigy 2 soundcard and Genius SW HomeTheatre 5.1 repro. 
I've installed ALSA emu10k1 - the system sound worked. Then I tried to play a 
movie and noticed the sound isn't going from all speakers but only from rear 
and center+subwoofer ones. The front left/right is quiet.

 I know about mplayer options -channels 6 and/or -ao alsa9:surround51 but all 
these result into NOSOUND :(

 Is it possible to made mplayer to use 5.1 reprosystem even when the movie has 
only 2 channels? I think so, but I cannot managed it ...

BTW - where can I get all options and suboptions of mplayer. 'cause i.e. 
alsa9:surround51 isn't described in neither man nor htdocs (or didn't I find 

Thanks in advance
