Works with ALSA too :) - Calvados - 2011-04-03 07:17
I just compiled AudioFilter and your fork of XBMC on my debian 6.0.1 x64 system using ALSA 1.0.24. I had to make a minor fix to AudioFilter makefile (-m64 instead of -m32 in the x64 ifdef), but except that, everything went fine. I am now able to watch in PassThrough a DTS-MA movie without any problem whatsoever .
Thanks a lot for your work and keep it up .
For reference, I am using a ASUS NVIDIA ENGT240, with latest NVIDIA drivers with a DENON AVR-1610 amp.

I found another problem movie, it is "The Condemned" and it has some loud pops at some sound intense scenes that can even cause the receiver to overload and shutdown.
I will make a sample from one of the pops and get it to you as soon as I get a chance.
The audio is 7.1ch DTS-HD HRA

Probably the same problem as Nightmare. I know what the problem is for Nightmare, but it's going to take some changes in pulseaudio.

Out of curiosity, what is the problem exactly?

The bandwidth requirements exceed the available bandwidth and the data is clipped.

doesn't seem to work for me with my NVidia connection. Works great with the built in intel optical. I have one of the new gtx590s, so maybe just a matter of hardware support. It's two gpus so two NVidia devices actually show up CARD=NVidia and CARD=NVidia_1. The actual connection is CARD=NVidia_1,DEV=3. Works great with ALSA and normal pulse, but pulse passthrough fails. Strange thing is I don't get a failure message, and the logs act like it's playing the audio. I'm wondering if it's not picking up the right configuration.

one other thing, your version of pulse give version UNKNOWN, so hard to compile against with apps looking for libpulse >= 0.9.x will see if I can patch it.
version patch - eternalsword - 2011-05-18 08:06
Here's my patch. Patch is applied before bootstrapping. Switched version to 0.9.999 Not sure what the closest version is to the current state of your repo. Should probably replace with that version. By the way, I'll probably set up an overlay for gentoo to automate using your stuff for anyone interested. I have the pulse ebuild working. Will need to set up audiofilter and xbmc.
