I'm not sure I understand what you are asking.
Are you looking to get surround sound from the VCD audio track, or trying to stop it from being in surround?
Oh - if it's not coming as surround maybe you have MPEG audio set as passthrough int he AC3filter config> (so it's passing 2 channel mpg audio, as-is. On the recordings it may be apply the surround alogrithms. (not sure why, maybe it doesn't recognise MP2 as mpeg audio? - what is the audio format of your recordings?)
Now, if you want to get an actual "surround" track and not just when applied by Ac3filter at play-time, then I suggest you download BeSweet (& BeSweet GUI) and have a go with that - it allows you to transcode your MP3 / MP2 audio tracks to 5.1 AC3, which could then be re-muxed into your MPEG-1 video file.
EDIT: Reading your q a bit more, I see what you mean - you want surround from the mpeg track, but not when playing normal mp3 music. I use a registry command to switch the SPDIF output on or off, linked to custom tasks in PVRX2. (as I cant hear anything on the tV when SPDIF is enabled if I dont have my amp on)
You could do the same for 5.1 or 2/0 speaker output - have One command for "set stereo", and one for "set multi channel"
I'll find the reg commands and post them.
