[LINUX] HOW-TO get quickly started with Acer Aspire Revo 1600 - Guide for XBMC Dharma

myrison Wrote:Jonect - the problem I've had on every version has been that if I chose 7.1 in the audio settings, multichannel PCM audio is completely random and just plain doesn't work. I've opened a bug report on it, but thus far, it hasn't gotten any traction. Do you have 7.1 working 100% now? That'd be very good news if so. If you think it's working, would you mind testing the sample file in that report and let me know if it works when you have your audio output set to 7.1?

Thanks!

I downloaded your file and played it on my setup. It appeared as 7.1 multi-channel on the receiver and 5.1 on XBMC. This is not very scientific, but I used a Vu meter on my phone and it appears to having the same mapping problem that I had on 7.1 MKV to 7.1 Receiver. On the rear channels, left rear was coming out left side and right rear was coming out right side. Each time I played it, the result was the same.

I'm no expert on ALSA, but is that map that I edited just for 7.1 in? Do we need to have a 7.1 to 7.1 mapping and a 5.1 to 7.1 mapping also?

Most of my content is AC3 core (stereo) or AC3 pass-through (5.1) and it has appeared OK but I didn't pay that close attention to the rear since it is hard to tell without measuring each speaker. My 5.1 and 7.1 HD audio files are now coming from MakeMKV which is supposed to just re-package, so I'm not using FLAC. I don't think that matters since this appears to be a channels-in to channels-out issue only.

I'm going to run some more tests and report back later, now that I know that there may still be some issues that I may have not noticed. Do you have any links to reliable 5.1 and 7.1 speaker identification media files? Here are the only ones that I know of. XBMC seems to cut off the first channel (front left) while trying to initialize the stream.
