I was searching for more info about support for DOLBY DIGITAL pass-through to
a digital audio output, but nothing recent came up.
This matter seems to be a serious shortage in FreeBSD, because the only
useable info which came up on www.google.com/bsd was concerning NetBSD
(http://bsd-crew.de/index.php/5.1-Surround-Sound_mit_NetBSD, which is in
German language). There something of an audio-layer is mentioned.
Is it really possible, that NetBSD is ahead of FreeBSD in that particular
I have a workstation with Asus A7N8X-deluxe motherboard, which features the
nforce2 chipset, and has an electrial digital audio output.
On my first few tests with FreeBSD 6.0 (-RELEASE), after loading the snd_ich
driver, I got analog sound working, but the digital output was not recognized
and did not show up in sysctl.
Any idea, if spdif support is already in -CURRENT, and if not, if somebody is
working on that issue?
