Music audio only 48kHz?

Post by bluefuzz » 27 Dec 2015, 15:45

Hi,

Many thanks to Davila and the team for making this happen. MrMC is working great on my ATV and it can only get better! :D

One question: when playing music (FLAC CD-rip 44.1 kHz/16-bit) my DAC reports 48 kHz. Why? I've fiddled with all the settings I usually use in Kodi without making any difference.

Since the new ATV sadly only has HDMI output I am using a HDMI splitter (ViewHD vhd-H2hSAs) to get an SPDIF signal for my DAC, but it seems to be clamped at 48 kHz ...

I'm not too concerned about the audio for movies. I have no interest in all the toytown multichannel formats. Stereo is fine for me – heck, most of the movies I watch are probably recorded in mono on a Nagra III! However it would be nice for music audio to be output with as little resampling as possible ...

Cheers
Ian

The ATV4 AudioUnit API only reports 48Khz as a valid sample rate.

OK, thanks. That was what I was afraid of ... Pity.

So the audio settings in MrMC don't actually do anything?

depends on what settings you are talking about.

I was thinking of 'Settings > System > Audio Output > Output configuration' and 'Limit Sample rate'. I take it there is little point in having these set to anything else than 'Fixed' and '48 kHz' respectively ... ?

On a related note, I've been listening to 16/44,1 FLACs streamed from my NAS (NFS protocol). They sound fine but I am experiencing an occasional audio glitch every few minutes. There also an audio glitch when the ATV screen saver kicks in.

Cheers

I have the same question.

Do the settings in the audio output matter? Or can't they change ATV4 output?

The current AudioUnit on the tvOS does not support 44.1k, that is why you see 48k. This might change depending on Apple.

So what do the settings in the mrmc audio output settings actually change? I can set them up to 192Khz, but if ATV4 forces a 48Khz output then it doesn't matter or does it?
