Frodo Beta AT3IONT-I - Lazulent - 11-26-2012

Hardware is correctly identified as Realtek ALC887 codec. GUI settings - "Analog output, 4 speakers, default HDA...." but this does not give surround sound because Realtek cards require analog jacks to be configured as input or output. This is not available from the GUI and does not happen automatically by selecting 4+ speakers. At present I am still using "amixer sset 'Channel Mode' '4ch'". Now that .asoundrc and asound.conf are deprecated it is not clear how this util operates. Is there a neater way of setting and preserving this configuration?
