Just one correction. I've just noticed that i have new switch in alsamixer 
now - "Channel mode" and when i switch it to 8ch that command below works :) 
Sorry for giving wrong informations...

> 5) As my soundcard is 7.1, current driver is incapable to use it:

> speaker-test 1.0.14rc1
> Playback device is surround71
> Stream parameters are 48000Hz, S16_LE, 8 channels
> Using 16 octaves of pink noise
> Channels count (8) not available for playbacks: Invalid argument
> Setting of hwparams failed: Invalid argument
> (uhm, i get that "Invalid argument" message in czech language 
as "Nepristupny 
> argument", i hope that is proper translation)
