Reuben,

Than that's a bug in the snd-hdspm driver.

It is an FPGA, so it's just a piece of firmware. If it really works to
pass along 64 playback channels instead of the 'official' 16 (I don't
know, I don't have an AES card), I really wouldn't recommend using this.
If one day the firmware gets modified to add new features, some now
officially 'unused' multipliers might be re-used and things will break.
After all, there is just a limited number of multipliers available.
