I have probably an odd request but I'm sure its possible. Basically my desk is on a different wall to how my 5.1 system is setup - i.e. the rear-right speaker should actually be my front left. If I were using analogue connectors then I dont think this would be much of a problem with the sink-remap PA module. I'm using a coaxial SPDIF connection to an AV receiver so this muddies the water somewhat.
Firstly I dont need/want 5.1 audio from my desktop. I've had it working with the a52 plugin and didnt like the delays it introduced.
At the moment pulse is using the correct sink for SPDIF but I cant figure out how to remap the channels - how can a map to a rear channel when it doesnt have a rear channel?
What I need is:
audio for the front-left channel to go to the rear-left speaker
audio for the front-right channel to go to the front-left speaker
all other channels should be mute
I hope this makes sense. Any ideas on how this could be configured? I'm still trying to get to grips with pulseaudio.
