My System Specs

Default

Unless some sort of compression is added (dolby digital, DTS), SPDIF can not output more than 2 channels. Most DIVX movies & music have 2 channel soundtracks. Some soundcards can encode and compress the sound in to AC3 though.

I bet if you were to play an mkv w/ a DTS soundtrack would get 5.1 no problem.
