Bug Description

I have the sound connected through digital S / PDIF
Sound works properly selecting stereo, but can not get it to work using 5.1
When I select stereo sound, appears on the tab below to phonon spdif output option.
When I select Output 5.1, that option does not appear.

I imagine the error will also occur selecting 7.1
