Wrong channels 5.1 - kreap - 04-29-2014


I have a AsRock 330HT and since I update to 3.95.x (generic) the sound channels of my 5.1 system are wrong mapped...
Any ideas to resolve this problem???

The problem is that the versions os the last betas is based no "Gotham"... So the audio menus doesn't have those options!

Pretty sure you can still remap the channels

Add a asound.conf with the following content in the /storage/.config directory or in the configfils samba share:
pcm.!default {
type plug
slave {
pcm both

pcm.both {
type route
slave {
pcm hdmi
ttable.0.0 1
ttable.1.1 1
ttable.2.4 1
ttable.3.5 1
ttable.4.2 1
ttable.5.3 1
ttable.6.6 1
ttable.7.7 1

Give it a try, but I can't guarantee it'll work. I switched to Gotham nightlies when I picked up an Intel NUC late last year, so haven't had to deal with sound config on the Ion since.

I also have a ION 330HT and just upgraded to OpenElec 4.0. I can confirm I have wrong channels in 5.1.
It worked fine with the previous version 3.2.4.

Anything can be done for 4.0 ?

Thank you

Update to my previous post

I was able to turnaround my problem for now by following this hint :

Seems like a problem on 4.0 when compared to 3.2.4

I'm having the exact same problem on the exact same platform. Can you explain exactly what you did to fix this? I'm still having the problem.

Feejus said : "Change your skin to default skin (the option might not appear on other skins as they have not updated them yet). Once done go to System on the left hand side you can see it says "Standard" change the Standard to Advanced and now go to your System Audio setting you should have loads of option including "Pass through" and DTS etc. enable them all and you will hear some great surround sound again"
