    Summary:

    The MP should be able of switching between audio channel while playing streams (TV,VIDEO) containing more then one audio channel.

    Description:

    At present MP doesn't provide simple switch to change between audio channels, neither while playing DviX containing more then one audio stream nor when watching TV program broadcast with dual audio.

    Sorry for getting back on that subject so late, but since I was using the 2.0.x version I thought that me not being able switch between the audio streams was due to the old MP version I was using.

    Now, having a little spare time I have reinstalled (clean installation of system and apps) my media box.

    Unfortunately, the new version haven't fix the issue for me :(

    The videos are played with all 3 audio streams at the same time, which is kind of annoying as you can imagine.

    In audio menu I have only AV delay slider, nothing else!

    I installed the 0.2.3.0 stable and have tasted it with Monochrome and the standard Blue skin, none of which has anything else but the “AV delay” in audio menu.

    Changing the audio decoder to AC3 or ffmpeg and trying to switch the streams with the keyboard key "A"
    was no help.


    Is there a easy way to either fix this issue or add such feature to upcoming release?


    If you need me providing any more information let me know and I will be happy to help.


    regards
    gig

    some screenshots of the audio menu and of media player classic which has no problem with switching the steams.

    I got the same problem :-(
    Is there someone who don't have the problem, and tell us his settings (Codec etc.)?

    I must admit that some of the dual sound mkv files works fine and I'm able to switch between the audio streams. Only multiple sound avi files are played with all streams at the same time.

    I don't think it has got anything to do with codecs or particular settings (I might by wrong, I hope :)) since Media Classic Player uses the system codecs , the same way as the Windows Media Player do. (which Media Portal uses) and has no problem what's so ever with any multiple audio stream file.

    What I think is, that's just a lack of feature or bug.


    In order to watch these multiple audio streams files using Media Portal I use the My Mplayer GUI plugin, since mplayer has no problem with these files.
