5.1 Dolby Sound Without Soundcard

Hi everyone,

I am currently setting up an audio installation with the following equipment:

Ableton Live 10
Surround Panner (Max Patch)
5.1 Dolby system connected via HDMI straight to my computer

The other day I was messing around with IOs and driver settings and somehow I pushed ableton from the original 2 channel output available with the HDMI connection to a whopping 10 channels. I could also route sound individually to each one of the speakers. I left work for the night and when I came back I couldn't do it anymore and I had lost my 10 channels.

I'm wondering if anyone has any idea of how this happened, how to recreate it, or what I can do in order to use this 5.1 dolby home cinema system (passive monitors) in order to route sound to individual outputs. I am currently looking into 3D sound codecs and AES business in order to try to give my audio files location metadata.

Thanks in advance for any ideas!
