When I first began using Linux I couldn't get the normal stereo sound to output to all my 5.1 speakers. Eventually I solved that by adding this .asoundrc to my home directory.
Since then I thought everything worked fine but I recently noticed that whenever I watch a DVD in Kaffeine using the 5.1 audio, it says xine "Audio output unavailable. Device is busy." and refuses to play it. However, if I play the same DVD with stereo audio it works just fine.
I have a feeling something in the .asoundrc file might be the cause here but I just compiled the file from a few wikis and forums so I have virtually no knowledge of .asoundrc hacking.
Is there anyone who knows what could be the cause here?
