Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Apple TV AAC/ALAC 7.1 SDDS

Hello,

according to the specification the default channel layout for 7.1 channels in AAC/ALAC is 7.1(wide) or SDDS (L R C LFE BL BR FCL FCR).
https://www.iis.fraunhofer.de/content/dam/iis/de/doc/ame/wp/FraunhoferIIS_Application-Bulletin_Fraunhofer-Surround-Codecs.pdf

This layout won‘t get much support on modern devices like my Yamaha Receiver.

Does someone know what happens when the audio stream is processed by e.g. my Apple TV?

AAC/ALAC 7.1 SDDS (Apple TV) —> PCM 7.1 (L R C LFE BL BR SL SR) (Receiver)
Or
AAC/ALAC 7.1 SDDS (Apple TV) —> PCM 7.1 SDDS (Receiver) (and Receiver looks for SR and SL so in fact he gets 6 channels)

Best
Felix

I tested it.
FCL and FCR getting mapped correctly.
