I was woundering I know that you can encode audio files with ac3 audio but it is only 2 channel. i want to know can you encode ac3 audio with 6 channel. If so how do you go about doing it. Basically I want dolby digital surround sound to be encoded in my audio files

You can't convert a stereo signal into 5.1 The chanels are not there. The reason you can get 2.0 is because your stereo channel is 2 channels. AC3 needs to have each channel assined to it with a different audio source. There are plenty of software aps that do this. I use soft encode which is a beta that later became a Acid plug-in.
If you are asking about shows that are being proadcast in 5.1 over the Tivo, I haven't dealt with that yet.
