Re: Which Nvidia IGPs support 7.1 channel LPCM under Linux?
I also tried in vain to get true multichannel pcm through HDMI. I have the 8200 and the SPDIF -> HDMI allows me to send AC3/DTS and stereo PCM through HDMI along with video.
But... since the intel chipset allows multichannel pcm and nvidia currently does not, I am led to believe it is a problem with the driver and not alsa's fault.
This last piece is the only thing holding me back from a true server based htpc. (long ago, my entire CD/DVD collection went into archival storage)
