[SOLVED] Pulseaudio. "Enable-remixing" option per output sink

Hello.

I have 2 outputs:
- hdmi 5.1 via videocard (A/V receiver)
- analog stereo via soundcard(headphones)

So, the problem is when I have "enable-remixing" set to yes, then stereo sound get remixed into 5.1 when played via hdmi and goes into every channel.
But when I have "enable-remixing" set to no, I don't have 5.1 remixed to stereo when played on headphones, thus I can't hear center and rear sounds.

Is there a way to set this option per output or some other option to only downmix(5.1 to stereo)?

That's pretty much what the remixing-use-all-sink-channels=no flag is for afaik.

Otherwise the easiest would be creating a remap-sink that explicitly disables remixing and playing back on that, as afaik you can't explicitly disable remixing an a per card basis for non-virtual sinks.

Wow! It did the trick!

enable-remixing = yes
remixing-use-all-sink-channels = no
