So you're saying that it does work ? (properly write 6 channels audio) ?

There are many ways we can write 5.1 audio.
Can do passthrough (of any format), or even if the original audio was
16bits PCM re-encode it either as AAC or AC3
Isn't there an option in the transcode setup on what audio you want in the end?
sorry if I don't know, I haven't tried transcoding in years..
