Is there any way i can help fix this ATI 2channel bug?
To actually test some possible fixes, I'd need a tester who knows how to compile, install, and patch the alsa kernel modules. If you do and want to test some stuff, you can contact me via email (again, firstname.lastname@example.org). I have some ideas, though I fear they are not very likely to work. We may ultimately need some documentation from ATI.

Alex Deucher (AMD employee).
Alex has mentioned that we are going to need some more code/docco in the hdmi audio area.
It's on the list of things to look at, no ETA yet but IIRC it's fairly close to the top of the list.
i tried to find a direct link to Kierank's EAC3 and other related work to date for you, but cant seem to find it now, you have chatting with him i see in the log's before, so best just go and have a chat about what he's worked on ,and the status of any outstanding code he has etc, he's working on several things including the x262 Mpeg2 Encoder framework for x264 right now ;) i beleave.:cool:
