I'm trying to play high res (24bit/96kHz) FLAC audio files via PS3.
High res FLAC files will play if I have "audio_resample=true" in PMS.conf, but this defeats the whole point of a high-res FLAC audio file.
Also, it is possible to play the files by navigating into Video in XMB instead of Music; however, even with audio_resample=false, it is resampling to 48kHz. Again, this defeats the point of 96kHz sample rate. Why the resampling????
The receiver is connected to PS3 with HDMI, and PS3 is configured to output every format available, including LPCM 2.0 96kHz, LPCM 5.1 96kHz.
I also have this problem when I try 5.1 channel 96kHz FLAC audio files, such as those at http://www.2l.no/hires/index.html . When selected from Video folder, it does play as 5.1 channel, but still 48kHz.
Does anyone have any ideas on why this is happening and/or how to fix? Any help is much appreciated.
