Your absolutely right, 2ch only.
Set passthrough as hdmi or spdif. Alsa cannot clone it though.
I have not experimented with xbmc, multichannel tracks and trying to get 7.1 PCM output from it.
Perhaps if I disable AC3/DTS passthrough I can get 7.1 PCM output instead.
Then we could at least do 7.1 LPCM over hdmi while doing 2ch downmix over analog/spdif. TVs might crap out on 7.1 PCM though. Hopefully they downmix it
Perhaps I will experiment with this tonight

And now you know why I love this patch.

If I was to update xbmc to a newer version I assume that would update the xbmc.exe file? Could I then overwrite it again - or would this patch need re-compiling?
Awesome patch!!! THANKS!!

first let me say thx for the new nightly v7 patch. I love the nightly rls the database is so much faster.
But in your windows exe for the master must be an error. With version 10.0 all is fine for me, but with the new exe i become only stereo sound on spdif and hdmi simultaneously. Here my settings under 10.0:
Audio DEvice: DirectSound Nvidia HDMI Out
Audio Device WASAPI S/PDIF
With this settings all is fine under the 10.0 i hear 2.0 sound over the hdmi to my tv and AC3 and DTS over spdif to my av-reiceiver.
The same settings under the master and i hear only stero to the s/pdif device no ac3 and dts.
Could you pls check this ? And pls pls pls release the exe for the master from 7.3. The database is so much better then in 10.0 and 10.1

Is there a Dharma 10.01 compatible version of this yet, or is it safe to use the (Mar. 7, 2011) build?
- Eisi2005 - 2011-03-11 19:35
the build from 7.3 is not compatible with 10.1
- rudeboyx - 2011-03-11 19:56
OK. Thanks for the info. I'll await an updated version.

Thx for this very useful patch. I use it to switch between my hifi devices abd my hc devices.
I've just upgraded my computer and i need to re install windows 7 and xbmc but i can't find dahrma 10.0 ! Any chace for a link here ?

OK, so if I update to 10.1 I lose this essential functionality.
Will you be updating the patch xhbl for 10.1 or 11 even? Or do we know if it will be included in 11 by default?

I upgraded to 10.1 and then used the 10.0 dual audio patch. Have not had any problems. I may be back to 10.0 by doing this. Who cares as long as it works.
