Well last night didn't happen for testing, but upon looking this
morning, I have to take back my previous statement.

All is working very well with 5.1 direct pulseaudio output. Perhaps it
was an older version that I had to go via alsa or maybe I just made that up.

Either way I can get really nice 5.1 output via spdif using the a52 alsa
plugin on top of PA. Works really well.
