I just recently got the hd-5500 card, and it works great. I am just wondering how to get it to record and/or play back 5.1 surround in Mythtv .19?

The stations I record definately have 5.1 surround, but when I record it and try to play it back, it is only coming in stereo.

Taking the file and playing like so, only produces 2 channel stereo

mplayer filename.mpg -ao alsa:device=spdif -ac hwac3

I have tried a few machines, and it either isnt recorded in 5.1 or I am not playing it back properly.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

I take it back, I just tried it on my other machine with the above mplayer command and it worked ok.


Is there anything special needed to be done, so that it works in MythTV?
