Yes, the Roku player can support pass-through of 5.1 surround sound to your TV or AV receiver. 

To enable surround mode on Roku, go to Settings>Audio>Audio mode and select "Auto".  

Note: 5.1 surround sound requires a receiver capable of decoding Dolby Digital and/or Dolby Digital Plus, depending on the audio format in the content.
