Description Of Issue
When I specify in the audio device setting “exclusive use” for my DisplayPort HDMI connection, Roon always outputs 6 channels, even if I set “2.0” for “channel layout”. This seems to be a bug. In addition, in this “exclusive” mode I can’t even override this in the Mac’s “Audio MIDI Setup”.
If I set it up NOT for “exclusive use” I can set the number of channels in Mac’s “Audio MIDI Setup”, but it is annoying that I have to change both the “MIDI” and the Roon setup to get things working.
