Thanks, will pull and upload new patches.

The last update "fixed" this - previously you could toggle regardless
of MaxChannels setting. However this meant people with 2ch analog out
could turn on the upmixer resulting in a mess. Proper solution would,
I guess, be two settings: MaxChannels and DefaultChannels but this
means another config option. Opinions?

Hmm. What do you mean by "disabling upmix"? Setting MaxChannels to 2
or toggling off the upmixer? In either case myth should produce 2ch
output - is ALSA (or whatever) configured to upmix / replicate
