It doesn't necessarily mean that PowerDVD is outputting 6 channels with only 2 active. It could still be outputting only 2 channels, only that Vista is the one that outputs 5.1 to the receiver. Vista is probably adding the blank channels.
It's the same situation with my trouble with PDVD8, it is unable to set Vista to output the same number of channels PDVD8 itself is outputting, so Vista always sends the 7.1, including 2 blank sides, and 2 wrongly mapped rears.
