you would see multi-channel LPCM if it was supporting more than 2 channels.

So here it's reporting 2 channels only.
Because of the name, myth makes the assumption that it can support 5.1
if AC3 or DTS is used.

but natively, this device can only support 2.0 uncompressed sound.

I had pondered about changing the description for those with something
like supports stereo, (up to 5.1 with AC3 or DTS).. But I felt it was
too complicated and the user should be spare the details.

It will show Stereo in the speaker configuration, unless AC3 or DTS is checked

So from what you've described, everything is working as it should,
except for that first run...
I just had a look, it's pretty hopeless what's going on.
Even though the box shows the last device, what's actually selected is
the "NULL" device (which is the last entry added to the list)

go figure..
