is it possible to output Multichannel sounds (5.1 flacs) via hdmi from ropieee to AVR?
No it isn’t. HDMI sound is not supported on RoPieee.
so what other distro can I use as a roon bridge on RPI and output sound via HDMI. I need to use hdmi bc i want to playback Multichannel (flacs 5.1) and i want to connect my roon bridge directly via HDMI to my AVR (there is no usb and spdif/coax do not support mch playback). Thanks
if there is a distribution like that whats the issue to add output via hdmi? i am missing point…
I don’t have a Raspberry Pi, so I can’t say with absolute certainty. But when I was searching for a multi-channel Roon solution, the consensus on this site was that the RPi can only support 2-channel via HDMI. Here’s the most recent RPi update I could find:
So I ended up having to use a small Windows mini-PC instead with Roon Bridge.
i tested it with vero4k and it worked somehow… but they did recently update and it doesnt work… now. Is multichannel via hdmi supported for mac mini as roon bridge?
