Nvidia HDMI Audio No 5.1 surround only Stereo Profile with no sound

Hello All,

I have a Nvidia Geforce 580 with HDMI connected to 5.1 surround sound system. When I first installed Fedora 16 I had no sound. In the pulse configuration it listed the correct hardware but only had a Stereo Profile that I could select. This didn't have any sound when I performed a speaker test.

After doing some research and troubleshooting I was able to get some sound by adding the following line to the /etc/pulse/default.pa file. This allows pandora and other applications to send audio to all speakers but doesn't seem to really resolve me issue.

load-module module-alsa-sink device=plughw:0,7
In Ubuntu 11.10 there are more profiles available that I can choose. One of these options is 5.1 surround sound. Once I select this profile in Ubuntu everything seems to work as expected.

Do you all have any ideas as to what I could do in order to enable true 5.1 surround sound and obtain the missing profiles that pulse on Fedora is missing? Below you will find the information that I am aware of to display.
