I see, so if I have (let's say) 2channels divx, it wouldn't play any sound if 
-ao alsa9:surround51 was requested. Alternatively playing DVD with these 
settings will be OK, won't it?

 I am curious if it can be somehow managed by ALSA itself. But it is probably 
question to another mailing-list ...

 Thanks a lot.
