The «PowerDVD» Windows based program player has «Dolby Digital» decoder themselves. So,
I’m wondering whether there is a chance to use "ECHO INDIGO DJ" soundcard with «PowerDVD» program player to get 4 channel sound output? The idea was to down-mix 5.1 into 4 channels output referencing to «INDIGO DJ» eight independent channels system representation.
I’ve tried multi-channel audio with foobar2000 and it works great. I have 4 independent audio channels output, which is nice.
BUT I can’t duplicate it with «PowerDVD» program player at any settings I’ve tried.
What would you recommend?
The first two pics are selection for the windows directsound device, showing the multiple virtual devices that map to the echo indigo. The third pic of power dvd is just a control for how many channels it should mix to. I suggest using power dvd in four channel mode. If that doesn't work, it may be because the echo indigo seems to be a dual stereo rather than a four channel sound card. If power dvd doesn't know how to map the audio it will only output to one stereo jack.
