My motherboard has onboard sound (how original!), it's a Foxconn ELA

It has a digital out but in Ubuntu 10.04 I can only get stereo out no
surround out? The box used to be dual boot with Windows and under
Windows I could get my much loved 5.1 kit a 5.1 feed out from the box
but now it cries in stereo.

I suspect this is because of this (

This is a screen shot of my sound preferences, as you can see only
stereo over digital is an option, why is this? Can I change this?


There are 10 kinds of people in the world; Those who understand
Vigesimal, and J others...?
