Sorry if this was already answered elsewhere, but I've ran some queries and didn't find what I was looking for.
It seems most PMS users use it mainly for multi-channel HDMI output.
I guess I'm old school and want it only for 2 channel, but in the higher resolution possible.
I'm using PMS mainly to stream HD audio files. I've some high resolution FLACs that I would like to send them to the PS3 the best way possible.
So far, I can only play them if I check the Automatic audio resampling to 44.1 or 48KHz on the Audio Files Engines. Otherwise I get either file corrupted or media not supported.
...but that way, the resolution goes down to 48KHz, which is not what I want.
Here's an example:

Is there any way to have PMS streaming the full resolution?
I have the PS3 S/PDIF successfully connected to a DAC at 176.4KHz, but there's no point getting it down to 48KHz and upsampled again.
The idea is getting as many info as possible into PS3 - That's the purpose for HD FLACs.
Thanks for any help.
