    only stereo sound in kubuntu, no 5.1

    Hello, i have a problem with my surround sound in kubuntu: IT WON'T WORK!
    stereo sound works great but if i try is sound-check; my center and rear speakers don't say anything...
    I use Alsa, my chip is a c-media CMI9761A, which works on a intel ICH5 card
    My settings in alsamixer are:
    surround: on
    surround: shared (i also can choose independ, both seems not to work)
    Chanels: 6

    I hope someone can help me, it's an important pc; it's a media centre in our living so 5.1 surround sound is pretty there...

    I too have this chipset and similar problems.

    In addition, I can't get the microphone to work, and the volume control on the desktop does not work. I have to open the controls and use the RCM slider to adjust the volume.

    I have tried using 4 channel and 6 channel as well as most other settings.

    Stereo works great (except for the volume control).

    Thanks to anyone for any help you can provide!
