You could output the 5.1 to an external receiver that down-converts to
2-channel stereo, but I'm pretty sure that's not what you're asking...
(In other words, the PVR-x50's/500's only capture 2-channel stereo or mono.)

You could capture 5.1 channels with an appropriate sound card, but
muxing it with your video--in sync--is a whole other matter.
