I'm trying to output 5.1 audio thru hdmi to a 5.1 home theatre receiver, but can only get stereo out to it. I have another laptop that can output 5.1 to it just fine.
Under Sound Settings > Output > HDMI, I don't see the drop down menu for 5.1 Surround like I do in my other laptop.
aplay -l :

Any help appreciated
