Are you sure you are running trusty? With consolekit installed the howto should work.

Audio Engine: SPDIF has only 2 pcm channels. DTS, AC3 are encoded via those 2 channels. It's obviously clear that you are not able to change Speaker Layout when running via SPDIF.

Yeah, started with Ubuntu 14.04 minimal. I'm using my own username and booting openbox-session if that makes any difference?
I added xbmc to openbox startup file and it's pretty instant.

Working a treat now I must say.
Boot takes 32 seconds from button press to xbmc, plenty fast enough on a machine that's over ten years old.

Just checked and definitely have consolekit installed.

The mechanism openbox uses might differ from the one the howto is telling you to use.

As shutdown is working fine on all systems I use with just that upstart script and the relevant consolekit permissions ...

I have to look into that anyways when 14.10 gets final with the integrated systemd.

I can't rule out something I've done leading to me needing to do this, had a few fun and games with slim, nodm and nvidia prior to trying to use your script again.

I'm probably going to setup a similar machine with similar stuff for bedroom so will see if that works as expected.

I don't provide a script - do I?

Sorry, that's me being daft.
