Thanks for your reply. Yes, I am using the -channels 6.  It seems mplayer 
thinks this is a 2 channel source. Although, it is a MPEG Multichannel file 
which should be backward compatible to a MPEG1-layer2 audio file. Which is why 
I am guessing there is confusion for mplayer.

I will post the log you requested soon.
