OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2

If I use the actual Build from Milhouse should I keep 2.0 speaker configuration for multichannel passthrough sound?

I'm referring to multichannel PCM sound, requiring a HDMI connection to an AV receiver, and number of channels set to more than 2, e.g. 5.1 or 7.1.
This allows multichannel audio for non-passthrough formats (like AAC, PCM, flac, etc).
This case has only recently started to work with the Pi Sink.

If you are using spdif/toslink, then multichannel PCM is not supported (by your equipment) and number of channels should be set to 2.0 and passthrough enabled.
This case has worked for some time with the Pi Sink.

If you are in the first category, then you can set the number of channels to, e.g. 5.1. Leave passthrough enabled if supported.
If you then play a multichannel AAC/PCM/flac file you should get working multichannel audio.
