While I don't have any surround stuff myself, I do see that sound preferences
allows for multiple profiles for a single device. (I have some headsets that
can have profiles with or without a mic and digital or analog output.)
Maybe there is a profile for surround devices to enable or disable the
full complement of speakers?
