I'm pretty sure it's 1 device at a time.

Yes, 1 device at a time, Plus there isn't really such a thing as 4.1 sound anyway. Most surround systems these days use a 5.1 system, which needs a decoder and a 6 channel amp to work (Usually all built in to home theatre systems).
The worst thing about having a failing memory is..... no, it's gone.

what a waste to use those pro speakers as backups. for now, they'll stick around the table as paperweights
