another way to do this would be to use jackd - each channel comes up as a 
separate jack port, so you could start 8 streamer clients (e.g. ices or 
oddcastv3, both of which support jack), and then send each one a separate 
input channel. Getting a proper multichannel sound card would still be better

If you do need to send an attachment or html mail, put [attachment] or [html]

Thanks, andy.
