hey, im new here and looking for some help working with the audio tools. More specifically im looking for help regarding multi-channel audio output from QC using the audio tools. I've searched and read a whole bunch of forum posts but i couldn't find an answer to a basic question ... how do i map audio to my different speakers ?

i have an early 2009 iMac running to a 6.1 surround amp using optical. If i play dvd's my amp plays in surround so i know it can work. but when i try to play a file in QC to one of my surround speakers to audio only comes out of left or right and my amp is still in stereo (2 channel) mode.

Is there a tutorial or can someone help me configure QC (or my iMac) to get multi-channel audio through optical ?
