No, it doesn't have to be. That's your preference. Sometimes you don't have a choice.Correct! But that has to be configured in the AV Receiver!
We understand what you want. No need to explain again and again.That's why I want PCM 2.0 to my AVR and not PCM 2.0 integrated in a PCM 5.1 signal.
No program can do this. There are only workarounds. For example, the PCM could be encoded with a format that can be bit-streamed. In MP you might be able to achieve this with codec settings, MPAR and/or post-processing.The best would be if MediaPortal would send PCM 2.0 as PCM 2.0 and not packaged in a PCM 5.1 stream if Windows Speaker Config is set to 5.1...
No, this is impossible.Wouldn't it be possible to bypass the Windows Speaker Setup (optionally) ?
MPAR is a standard DirectShow/DirectSound audio renderer. Any program or plugin can use it if they're using DirectShow/DirectSound. If they're not using DirectShow/DirectSound then they won't have access to it.Does a plugin developer has acces to MPAR?
Upmixing does not have to be done by the AVR. I understand that you prefer to use AVR upmixing because you think it's better. However it's not the only way to upmix. That's why I said it's your preference.No! It IS the only correct way to handle this...
I checked the RadioTime code here:RadioTime is not using LAV Filter and not MPAR, so Internet Radio is sent as 5.1 PCM
That should be the default behavior so stereo sources should only play through your left and right speakers while all other speakers remain quiet, unless if your AVR does some upmixing of its own.I want to PCM 2.0 send as PCM 2.0 and not packaged in a PCM 5.1 signal
