Dedicated audio channel for video playback ?
« on: August 08, 2015, 04:26:34 am »

I apologize for this stupid question, I wasn't able to find an answer to my issue yet (forum, manual).

I am using MC20 for computer-based music playback via HTPC, Marian SeraphD4 audio card and Metrum Pavane DAC. Everything works fine via kernel streaming, I am very pleased, being a customer snce MC17.

However, occasionally, my wife want to watch a video/movie and as our HTPC is connected to the TV by HDMI, I "discovered" that MC20 is also a formidable video player (sorry, movies are not my no.1 prio).

For routing the sound to the TV I have to (re)configure a display audio driver  instead of the audio-card channel (Audio settings in Options).... and it works fine.

My problem is that I don't know how to configure MC20 to AUTOMATICALLY go/route via audio card when playing Music and display audio driver when playing Videos respective ... as I don't want to reconfigure each time I swirch from Music to Video playback.

I somehow can't believe that this shoudn't be possible, BUT HOW ?

many thanks in advance!

you should make two zones.. one for audio, and one for video. and then use the zoneswitch to automatically change them.. there is more her http://wiki.jriver.com/index.php/Zones

i think that should get you going, if not just say were you got stuck

Gab,

One thousand Thank You!

It works...never experimented with zones, it was quite trivial indeed.

Best regards,
Adrian
