I tried this setup but I just get Frontspeakers working. I use alsa9x as I
XINE doesnt support alsa10x + multi channel output.

Hrm, checked it. Normal surround works, but not with the pan filter.
Everything I tried with the pan filter comes to no result. Normal output
with -channels 4 works (and gives me rear speakers but no LFE :-/)

Any ideas?
