>this is what it does.
Aha, wasn't obvious that it did that just by eyeballing the patch - I
could just see the AC3 stuff and misunderstood - sorry
So what's the big barrier to getting some of this committed? Most of it
looked quite reasonable just eyeballing the patch?

I guess the issue is probably that the decoder is setup before
initialising the audio? If we initialised the audio first then we could
request a certain number of channels, have it fail and tell us how many
it's really got and then fall back to using that? This wouldn't catch
the case of someone with a multichannel card and only two speakers
hooked up, but it would help for the two channel card or spdif setup?
Seems really promising anyway! What can I do to help some or all of
this get committed?!
