After a fresh update from 2.05, where EFX was set to OFF, I am not having any problem with surround sound. Will try enabling EFX and see what happens.

It would be great to see console log on startup and cfg-file (for 2.06 beta which does not use 5.1 system properly).

If you test in 2.05, you can try enabling OpenAL with CVars s_useOpenAL and s_libOpenAL (better restart TDM after change). Although 2.05 uses system OpenAL, while 2.06 uses embedded OpenAL Soft.

Ok, even more ideas:

1. If you set two environment variables:
  set ALSOFT_LOGLEVEL=3
  set ALSOFT_LOGFILE=openallog.txt
Then you could post here the internal log of OpenAL soft (it should be in openallog.txt). Most likely it would be useful =)

2. You can try to set 5.1 configuration in OpenAL configuration file.
Copy contents of default config file from:
  https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kcat/openal-soft/master/alsoftrc.sample
into %AppData%\alsoft.ini.
Now find the following line in it:
  #channels =
Replace it with (note the removed sharp):
  channels = surround51
Run TDM, set 5.1 configuration and see if it helps.

P.S. Just remember to roll back these changes after the experiments to avoid surprises in future!

I can't seem to reproduce the problem using the beta version of 2.06. Surround sound is working properly, even when I turn EFX on. Unless someone else reports problems, I'm going to assume it's something wrong with my developer build.
