HBO Soundfield Specs

Hi Folks,

I'm trying to deliver to HBO's Audio Technical Specs. They're requesting audio delivery in a single PCM file but in two Soundfield groups, stereo and 5.1. I'm unfamiliar with soundfield groups and googling just ends up with the mic company etc. It feels like it should be a simple question but I'm not coming up with much.

To put it another way, how can I export a two track PCM file that has two nested files, a stereo and surround mix?

Could anyone point me in the right direction?

Looking at the specs, I'm just reading that as 2 files, 1 with a 6 channel 5.1 smpte order, and another with a 2 channel stereo (or dual mono if it be mono)?
Exact same length/sync.
I haven't come across the soundfield term in this context and haven't delivered to them before, so...

Maybe I was simply over thinking it and tracks is in reference to streaming and DVD tracks rather than tracks in an audio file. We'll submit them as discrete stereo and 5.1. Thanks for the help!
