When I set the sound card to "4 speakers" and play a BD I get what I expect, surround with full bass to each speaker. When I set the soundcard to "6 Speakers" I get the same output. I would have expected to lose most or all dialog since that should now be sent to a CC that isn't there and I would expect to get something out of the subs but this doesn't happen either.

So I guess just part of my troubleshooting I need to know if the LFE is indeed a separate recorded channel that exists in the sound track or is it derived from the L/R front channels or a sum of all 5 channels?
LFE is a separate channel and a lot of receivers or subwoofers have a specific spot to hook up the cables for this.
