Multichannel FLAC playback.

Postby Splat1 » Sat Mar 07, 2009 4:48 pm

I grabbed a couple FLAC multichannel test files and am having problems getting them to playback at anything other than stereo. I believe multichannel flac is supposed to work. I am trying to convert my dvda disks to multichannel flac so I can stream them. Any help is most appreciated.

Here is my debug log..

Play it thru Video instead of Audio on the PS3... the problem that I still have is that audio is being downsampled to 48K. I wrote that problem here viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3286. Some time ago (with a previous PS3 software version) I noticed that all channels were activated on my receiver even for stereo CD. Now I only have 2 channels lighted up and I was wondering if the downsamplig was putted there by Sony as part of a software update. I never tried the PS3 Media Server before.
