Audio SPDIF and HDMI simultaneously? - floyd4711 - 02-08-2016

Hi,

I have a new Headphones which can be connected to my HTPC via SPDIF out. So I have my audio output settings set to SPDIF and it works fine, but when the time is right to listen to the speakers attached to my AVR via HDMI, I have to set the passthrough to enabled.
It is a little bit annoying to switch to the settings

Is there a way to play SPDIF and HDMI simultaneously?

In earlier times there was a file called "asound.conf" in the configuration folder, I think this one isn't used anymore, is it?

AFAIK it's not possible.
But if you use Audio Profiles Switcher you can map a remote button to toggle between spdif, HDMI, whatever profile you set up with a single keypress.

I'll give the keypress a try, but I prefer a simultaneous solution.

Anybody? asound.conf?

@trogggy: works fine with "Audio Profiles Switcher", thanks.

@Grael: I wasn't aware of those builds, But this is too much trouble, I didn't know what surprise comes with those builds.

Grael thank you!!! works like advertised maybe ... hopefully become a standard Feature

spent the weekend trying to get an Hdmi and a SPDIF up and running and this worked right out of the box
