So, I have one of those stereo components, into which I have my computer's audio line-out plugged. Unfortuntely, it's getting old and startig to shut off at certain volumes when streaming to my TV-out related speakers.

My motherboard also has a surround-sound output, which might be fun to use. My question is this:

Does anyone know of a way to run both outputs at once, and perhaps assign them to a particular monitor? I would be happy just being able to run the line-out to a stereo speaker set, and my surround being used elsewhere depending on which I was using, but if I could even assign them automatically, that would be great.

Anyway, hope this makes sense. Would PulseAudio recognize the different devices? They're both Onboard.
