    If you want to play 5.1 audio in itunes read this
    Play 5.1 audio in iTunes | iPod & Entertainment | Mac 911 | Macworld

    It's not a straight forward method but the people who wrote the article say it seems to work.

    It does work… been using it on my Mac mini HTPC, though I now just use Plex, which bypasses the need for Perian.

    One thing I should point out about videos from the iTunes store that have 5.1 audio tracks… those tracks are actually disabled and only are usable on an Apple TV. I kid you not.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
