I don't think that this is currently possible, though it would be a 
really great feature. The easy way from hardware point - use stereo 
channels separate - would be rather tricky as you would have to recode 
the audio signal on the fly. But an secondary sound card output (dvb + 
sound card out or 2 sound cards) should be possible as plugin. Maybe 
even overlay an existing 5.1 output with different language on the rear 
channels.

Anyone who ever wanted to write a plugin and had just no idea what? ;)


Cheers,

Udo
