i’m struggling a bit to find the right place for asking news about PCM multichannel through HDMI. The subject is discussed in several posts. I’m the new owner of Odroid N2. Let me rephrase what i’m “hoping” :
With my Sony player BDP-S550 and a AVR Denon 4306, i’m able to let the Sony deal with some 7.1 formats (not the newer ones like atmos or higher) that my AVR does not know. HDMI 1 is enough for that, it works fine and it is lossless as far as i know. The AVR displays “M-PCM”. I’d like to do the same and more with the N2…
I guess all people talking about LPCM are waiting for the same ? Any idea if/when this could implemented ? Need people to test ? I read somewhere it was a linux issue ?
Cherry on the cake would be to be able to transcode newer formats like atmos(not lossless) to something LPCM friendly. As far as i understand, it is not possible to do it lossless because of bandwith limitations with old hdmi. Never saw any hardware (high end new bluray players) doing it except for old 7.1 formats.
