Actually, from historical reasons, the standard ALSA channel mapping
for 5.1 is
    FL/FR/RL/RR/C/LFE
while Windows sets FL/FR/C/LFE/RL/RR.  If you play a WAV file assuming
the latter channel assignment, it will be played like that.

Does the nvidia codec support channel-slot assignment (verb 0x734)?
If yes, we can assign the channels freely to fix this...


thanks,

Takashi
