Description Christian Nolte 2008-05-24 12:09:07 EDT
Since some updates (I have not figured out what is the exact problem here) AC3
passthrough using pulseaudio does not work anymore. The yum.log is attached. AC3
Passthrough did work on the 14th of may.

Disabling pulseaudio via /etc/alsa/alsa.conf "fixes" this problem for me:

@hooks [
                func load
                files [
#                       "/etc/alsa/pulse-default.conf"
                errors false

PulseAudio doesn't do AC3 pass-through. If you want to use it, then you have to
use the spdif ALSA plugin and bypass PA. If PA is blocking access to the audio
device you might want to wrap your call in "pasuspender".
