I'm currently using

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

to enable 5.1 sound on my Card: Intel ICH5 Chip: C-Media Electronics CMI9780 

Sound quality is great when using alsaplayer or xine. However, when using 
Totem-GStreamer, or any other GStreamer player (Rhythmbox). The sound is 
ticking badly.
I've tried several scripts to enable 5.1 sound, but the all had the same 
outcome, ticking sound with GStreamer0.10.

Not using the script, when only playing sound from 2 speakers, I can not 
notice any ticks.
