You're not alone :)

As far as I know, the pcm(4) driver currently only supports 2 channels, 
which means your rear speakers will not be getting a signal.

It might be a good thing to submit a PR and remind the developers that 
people want extra channel support, although I am sure they are working on 
it :)
