    It depends on the sound files in the original source.

    If you're using DVDShrink to shrink a ripped DVD you'll need to select the AC3 5.1ch file and not the AC3 2ch file; alternatively select the DTS file.

    Your burner will burn whatever files you tell it which is determined by what you rip. Your burner can't make 5.1 out of 2ch. You could try reauthoring software such as DVD Studio but you'll probably find it more trouble than it's worth. Me, I live with the occassional 2ch video. All of the older vids and many of the newer ones too are only 2ch sound.

    If all you've got is 2 channel (stereo) sound files then that's all you'll normally get as output unless your player has the facility to play 2ch through all 5 speakers. Simulated surround sound is what my player calls it.
