some time ago I lost my 5.1 output setup and hoped it would come back with the Trusty upgrade. it didn't. I used to see an option allowing me to choose 5.1,6.1,stereo etx and now the option is gone. alsamixer shows front center, but no real left, rear right and bass.
please, advise how to fix.
thanks
