Following the sound box discussion, I decided to go for a lower-end AV
Receiver; it came with speakers, and now I have some kind of 5.1 sound
I do not have analog 5.1 outputs on my motherboard, but I do have SPDIF
output, and the AVR has SPDIF input. A usual DVD player would send 5.1 sound
Question: is it possible to make Linux do the same, with any of the assorted
DVD playing programs?
I am using kernel 2.6.18, the motherboard is an ASUS P4P800 and has solid ALSA
support for the integrated sound system; the SPDIF is available as hw:0,4.
Yours, Mikhail Ramendik
