I have vlc 1.1.12 as well as vlc 2.0.1 installed on my Ubuntu box.

When I run vlc 1.1.12 and play a file, I get all six channel output as expected.

However, when I play vlc 2.0.1, the debug log says:

alsa audio output debug: downmixing from 6 to 2 channels.

The following forum message mentions that a bug was fixed in 2.0.1:


However, I am still getting this problem in 2.0.1. 

I am wondering if anyone had any thoughts on what could be wrong.

Thank you in advance for your help.
