I have been doing quite some research of why i can't get "digital audio" passthrough on my TV from my HTPC when it works flawless when watching regular TV.
So far I concluded that it must be some edid related issues?
My Setup is
HTPC =HDMI> Samsung LE40B650 (tv) =optical> Logitech Z-5500
The HTPC is an Xtreamer Ultra with an Atom D525 NVidia ION2.
The Z-5500 supports hardware decoding of DD, DTS and DTS 96/24 and PCM 44,1kHz/16bit to 96kHz/24bit.
As seen from the edid information and from dmesg, then the TV only reports 2 channel LPCM:
[773134.532040] HDMI: detected monitor SAMSUNG
[773134.532046] at connection type HDMI
[773134.532054] HDMI: available speakers: FL/FR
[773134.532066] HDMI: supports coding type LPCM: channels = 2, rates = 32000 44100 48000, bits = 16 20 24
The problems arise when I try to play mkv files using xbmc, where I either get stereo sound, no sound or errors from xbmc according to what ever settings I set.
Thus I hope that an edid overwrite would help. If this is the case, then I would appreciate some help in making it, as I'm not sure which hex values to use for the above mentioned supported audio of my Z-5500.
