Is mythfrontend capable to send 5.1 sound out from soundcard's analog 
connectors? I'm planning to buy cheap 5.1 speaker set to bedroom. They 
don't use digital out, but connect directly to soundcard, which has 5.1 
speaker outputs. SC is soundmax integrated (asus m2npv-mx)

Now, I only get sound from front speakers, even if there is 5.1 track. I 
use internal player to play dvd. TV channels also transmit surround 
sound often.

In living room I have dolby amplifier and I use AC3 passthrough, what is 
working great. But I don't want buy separate amplifier to bedroom, I 
think some kind of computer 5.1 surround set (creative, logitech etc) is 
working fine for that purpose.
