Haven't heard from anyone regarding this topic.  Is
this the the wrong forum for this question?  I've been
using the mplayer -identify option to access many of
the a/v file's ID_ meta data, but I was hoping to get
some clarification about identifying surround sound or
the number of channels actually used in a given a/v
file with this method or some other way.  The audio
channels seem to report only two channels by default.

Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
