      It does not look like it, unfortunately HDMI audio remains mostly useless as it still supports only a few legacy formats (see bug https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=101900).

        Other formats than stereo are useless because lack of media material. In most of DVD movies, you have only background music mixed to back speakers.

        - Stereo and 5.1 PCM are working"

          When Alex returns from the Christmas holiday, he will commit patches to here: https://cgit.freedesktop.org/~agd5f/...-next-4.16-wip

          It is easier to clone the whole kernel than use several patches.

          git clone -b drm-next-4.16-wip git://people.freedesktop.org/~agd5f/linux
          cd linux
          cp ~/Documents/kernel/.config .

          fakeroot make-kpkg -j 4 --initrd kernel_image

          dpkg -i ../packagename.deb

          Reboot with the new kernel.

              Hopefully DC will be enabled soon by default for Polaris.

                Make a faster and more stable kernel than your distribution have and enable yourself. See the second message: https://www.phoronix.com/forums/foru...in-living-room

                Amd, when you put this information to the Amd site or pay for me for customer support work. I have post this 2 years almost every day.

                  I made an AUR package to build the kernel from git, with the configuration fixes for Ryzen that debianxfce posts about and also with the GCC optimization patch, enabling compilation with -march=native.

                  It's called "linux-ryzen-git", but nonRyzen systems should benefit from the optimization patch too.

                    correct me if I am wrong, but don't the haswell optimisations perform better than the zenver1 ?
