Actually, I had to type in ALSA:hdmi in the "Audio output device:"
field in order to get this to work. The steps I used were:
1) Install the latest ALSA from:
2) Added the following to ~/.asoundrc:
I think that this is slightly different than the one above. Maybe
because of my amp? I had to tweak it after running "speaker-test
-Dhdmi -c 8" .
3) Set "Audio output device:" to ALSA:hdmi .
I'm not sure that this is the most efficient way, but it worked for
me. The only thing I'm a little bummed about is that DTS-MA HD tracks
have to use the DTS Core, so all of my 7.1 videos fall back to 5.1.
JYA - thanks for the 24Hz tip on your web site - videos that are 24
fps look much smoother with that fix than otherwise.
Hope this can help someone else.
