Mebbe this is new with JRiver Media Center 19, or perhaps it was in 18 and I just didn't "see" it?
My custom media server as set up outputs audio two ways: (1) Stereo: SOTM USB card into Berkeley Audio USB converter, into Gen VIII Series 3 DAC; abd (2) Multichannel (or stereo): HDMI out into CB3 HD SSP.
Previously, in order to change from #1 to #2, I had to turn off the SOTM USB card (the little switch on the back of the PC) or simply pull the USB cable a bit out of the connection, and ensure the HDMI cable was properly fully inserted;
and in order to change from #2 to #1, I had to turn on the SOTM USB card and make sure the USB cable was fully inserted, and pull the HDMI cable a bit out of the connection.
Now, with Media Center 19, I have setup one Zone for "2 Channel (USB)", and another Zone for "Multichannel (HDMI)". The SOTM USB card power remains on, the USB cable remains fully inserted, and the HDMI cable remains fully inserted.
I simply switch in JRiver from one zone to another as needed. That's it!!!@@@
Also, on my iPad3 for JRemote, at the bottom left corner of the screen, I can also switch zones.
