> Ok, so in my testing so far ALSA:analog works great at 2ch and 5.1ch.
thats because I can use it :)
there is another patch for #chan changes within a stream to stop the hiccup
when audio is reinited.
Im halfway done lavc fft mods with config but for some reason it doesnt

perhaps some of those using it can advise settings. I cant remember names.

Only alsa so far.

I suspect DTS should be ok. not sure of the 8 ch behaviour though if that is
>Before I do, had you tested SPDIF output?
no. only through others and they havent complained recently so I only assume
its still ok.
I dont have a spidf setup yet until I get my new frontend done.
I should get the hardware this coming week on order.
> If so and you got sound, what kind of CPU usage were you seeing?
on my combined XP2000+ analog upmixing fftw3 uses about 39% vs 21% for 2ch
for same video.
no figures for passthru.
