Surround Sound Dolby 5.1
Is there a way to use Alsa 6 channel sound in game of half Life 2?

I checked console commands under indows, but when I use tab - it doesn't even find them.(for example 'snd_digital_surround 1')

Card 100% supports surround sound, tested in movie players other games.
I use ALSA variable when run steam

I want to know to, I have a 5.1 system here and alsamixer also detects that but in-game I can only select 2 channel audio.

I have no resolution but bumping for visibility.

Source engine games have no surround sound capability in Linux, they only output in stereo for now.

If Valve is really going to create a Linux based game console, then not supporting anything but 2 channel sound is a decided disadvantage for such a box.
