Full Version: Multiple audio out (TV AND Amplifier)
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.

I have been using XBMC for quite som times (Have 3 computers at home running from a shared mySQL database).

But I have always had a problem with getting "dual" sound in the living room.

I have a ZOTAC ZBOX Blu-ray HD-ID34, and is using HDMI to connect it directly to my TV (video and audio).
My amplifier does not have an HDMI connector, so I am not able to loop the HDMI thru the amp.

The Zotac also have an digital audio (SPDIF) that I can use, but I can not use both at the same time.

Sometimes I just hear the audio on the TV and other times I would prefer it to be in 7.1 DTS.

Is there an easy way to switch ?
No one knows, or can it not be done ?
