emu10k1 and 5.1 surround sound

Hi all!

I try to enable my 5.1 surround sound with my Creative Labs Audigy 2.
I've run alsaconf without a problem. Sound works at all. I've rised Master, PCM, PCM Center, PCM Front, PCM LFE, PCM Surround, Front, Surround, Center, LFE and Synth to 100% via the alsa-mixer.
When I round the alsa speaker-test

$ speaker-test -Dplug:surround51 -c6

I just get sound from FrontLeft and FrontRight.

$ aplay -Dsurround51 /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Left.wav -c6
Playing WAVE '/usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Left.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 48000 Hz, Mono
aplay: set_params:887: Channels count non available

Google helps me and said, that only stereo is supported...
I've had a look at the forum and created /etc/asound.conf with this content:

pcm.!default { 
 type plug 
 slave.pcm "surround51" 
 slave.channels 6 
 route_policy duplicate 

No change.
What can I do?

Re: emu10k1 and 5.1 surround sound

I see we've got the same problem... This setting is not working for me either, changing levels in alsamixer does nothing. I can hear only front left, right, and subwoofer, but sub has damned low volume... I'm using via82xx. Tryied probably everything, but no change.

I don't understand it!!!
