    I'm unable to run the test with ubuntu 10.10. Is it because of the kernel (2.6.35)? I guess that I need 2.6.36.

    And thanks a lot for all of you guys that spend time on this wonderful (much expected) feature.

    Sounds like something is wrong with ~/.asoundrc. Did you follow the instructions? If so, please attach the file.

    I think I did. Here is my .asoundrc:

    Code:
    ## begin hdtest stuff
    pcm.hdmihdtest {
            @args [ DEVICE CTLINDEX ]
            @args.DEVICE { type integer }
            @args.CTLINDEX { type integer }
            type hooks
            slave.pcm {
                    type hw
                    card Intel
                    device $DEVICE
            }
            hooks.0 {
                    type ctl_elems
                    hook_args [
                    {
                            name "IEC958 Playback Default"
                            index $CTLINDEX
                            lock true
                            preserve true
                            value [ 0x06 0x82 0x00 0x01 ]
                    }
                    {
                            name "IEC958 Playback Switch"
                            index $CTLINDEX
                            lock true
                            preserve true
                            value true
                    }
                    ]
            }
    }
    pcm.hdmihdtest0 { @func refer name "pcm.hdmihdtest:DEVICE=3,CTLINDEX=0" }
    pcm.hdmihdtest1 { @func refer name "pcm.hdmihdtest:DEVICE=7,CTLINDEX=1" }
    pcm.hdmihdtest2 { @func refer name "pcm.hdmihdtest:DEVICE=8,CTLINDEX=2" }
    pcm.hdmihdtest3 { @func refer name "pcm.hdmihdtest:DEVICE=9,CTLINDEX=3" }
    ## end hdtest stuff

    DVD is going the way of VHS.

    I don't think there's so much difference as was the case when switching from VHS to DVD.
    Watch a Blu-Ray on an HD television, then make that assessment. You won't notice any difference if you are still using standard definition.

    I've just found the following in the release notes for the newly released GStreamer Base Plug-ins 0.10.31:

    Features of this release

    * typefinding: detect enhanced AC-3

    and

    Bugs fixed in this release

    * 623846 : typefinding: add support for " enhanced ac3 " (eac3)

    That's a GNOME bug number - the corresponding bug report is at https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=623846

    Does this mean that the new patches you have been discussing and testing will now also allow playback of E-AC3 in Gstreamer based applications as well as in MPlayer?

    No, the patches are for passthrough, which is a different thing from detecting or decoding E-AC3.

    Heh, they add E-AC3 support, but forget about TrueHD.

    • Kernel version and ALSA version (/proc/asound/version)
    • Model name of the receiver
    • Which of the test files work or won't work
    1. EVGA GeForce GT240
    2. NVIDIA 260.19.06
    3. Linux 2.6.36 i386, ALSA 1.0.23
    4. Yamaha RX-V667
    5. Assuming dts.spdif is very brief and does not have much in it, both test files work:

    Code:
    $ aplay -D hdmihdtest0 -c8 -fs16_le -r192000 thd.spdif 
    Playing raw data 'thd.spdif' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 192000 Hz, Channels 8
    $ aplay -D hdmihdtest0 -c8 -fs16_le -r192000 dts.spdif 
    Playing raw data 'dts.spdif' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 192000 Hz, Channels 8
    $
    Steps I used to get this (and all surround sound) working on my Xubuntu 10.10 HTPC:

    0. Disabled on-board audio in BIOS (did this long ago before I even had two channel HDMI sound working).

    1. Updated kernel to 2.3.36 using this guide

    2. Uninstalled PulseAudio by searching for "pulseaudio" in Ubuntu Software Center and removing all installed items then using the two commands from this post

    3. Followed all instructions in this post (including the ones in the linked XBMC Wiki article) then rebooted.
