I just noticed you are decoding and re-encoding the bit streams, not doing a
passthrough. I don't much like doing that as it destroys the sound quality.
I also don't much like that old howto that you referenced, didn't have much
luck with it, which is why I wrote the one I wrote. However, I don't have
HDMI so am not much help.
Okay, I changed .asoundrc to just this
Then I changed mythfrontend audio setup as default and stereo.
Now i have sound over both spdif and hdmi.
However, the spdif is not showing up as digital. I assume this is because I do not have pass through set up correctly. If so, how do I set the spdif out as pass through>
