Hi there, I'm working on an installation that has a 5.1 surround soundtrack sync'ed to video.
I've built patches that manage unified playback via a Firewire audio interface, and it works fine.
However, the computer that we're using for playback has an SP/DIF output, and I was wondering if we can use that instead. The venue has a receiver that takes SP/DIF input, so that would be really straightforward.
As far as I can tell, Max/MSP sees the SP/DIF output as a stereo output, not 5.1 (which looks like it requires AC3 encoding?)
Is there any way for Max/MSP to use the SP/DIF output for surround sound?
