I found a way to figure out available sound card options through Java that way I could specify which to use. The only option out of these that works is "ICH5 [plughw:0,0]", and it only plays through FL and FR. So if you can find a workaround I haven't thought of besides these two it would be much appreciated. I had figured that once I got the surround sound working one of these options would just work.. I was mistaken though.
