Hey guys, I'm having trouble with mpd coupled with pulseaudio when trying to play surround sound (5.1) songs.
The issue seems to be that mpd completely ignores my front-right speaker - nothing comes out of it.
deadbeef and amarok can play the songs perfectly fine, and aplay -c 6 tests show that it's fine, as does the KDE settings multimedia speaker test
Anyone got any ideas? My mpd config output is as follows:
name "My Pulse Output"
sink "alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-surround-51" # optional
I've tried with and without the sink option, it makes no difference.
