Chromecast with surround sound setup

My living room is pre-wired with surround sound including speakers. There are 3 speakers on the front wall where the TV goes, and 6 speakers on the ceiling moving front to back. The input to all speakers is on a wall panel on the front wall. I know I'll need a receiver to get surround sound.

 

From what I've read, it appears Chromecast plus Google TV, which I own, can only do Dolby Digital 5.1 which would support the 3 front speakers plus 2 of the ceiling speakers. Is this the most surround sound speakers I can use with Chromecast plus Google TV, or is there a way to use all 9 speakers?
