The mixer controls for the surround jacks are changed in the recent
version. Instead of "Line-In As Surround" or "Surround Jack As
Input" switches, now there are two enum controls:

- "Channel Mode" (2ch/4ch/6ch)
controls the surround output channels, i.e. toggles the I/O
direction of the shared line-in/mic jacks.

- "Surround Jack Mode" (Shared/Independent)
controls the line and mic jacks are shared for surround output and
inputs. "Independent" is for the recent mobos which have separate
input and output jacks. When Independent is chosen, the setting in
"Channel Mode" has no influence.


In your case, set "Channel Mode" to 4ch and "Surround Jack Mode" to
Shared so that the line-in jack is used as surround output.
Then turn on "Duplicate Front" switch.

I'll prepare a better documentation later...
