Damn, this was on my todo list for last night but I forgot :s

I meant to look and see if my statements were (still) true or not :)
Will try and do it when I get home if I'm not too drunk (it is Friday

Should just be a matter of running pavucontrol and having a look at the
last tab.

I suspect that digital output in 5.1 wont be supported out of the box on
Ubuntu as don't think they have the relevant patches included to ensure
full support but I could be wrong as I've not played... I'll find a live
cd/usb somewhere to test at some point.

Cool I may or may not be in there depending on how fun the pub is after
work (tonight for me is 6pm+ GMT FWIW - timezones are always a pain when
referring to such abstract concepts but I'm fully guilty of doing that
