Default Re: Call for testers: HDMI pass-through

I'm wonder if that is because the sample is too short? Is there by chance a larger sample I can use?
You can find a much longer DTS-HD sample from here: (49MB)
and a 1 minute TrueHD one: (4MB)
You'll need to uncompress them first with gunzip.

Does "The audio plays" mean you hear some audio, or just that you don't get any error?

So did the receiver recognize it then?
Simple concatenating has a chance of working, but it is not guaranteed.

*edit* Should mention I edited the asoundrc to use NVidia_1 instead of NVidia - as I have an onboard HDMI that I don't use which is detected as the first card.
