Two sound cards
« on: December 30, 2011, 09:31:19 am »
Hello,
Is it possible to use sound card A for 2-channel music, and sound card B for surround (movie) sound?
Thanks!!

We have no provisions for that.

What you can do, is create two rooms for that, which use the same MD with two sound cards, and associate the stereo room with one sound card, and the surround room with the other. Look at squeezeslave in the forum.

Thanks posde and maverick, both sound like good ideas!  8)   I'll look into it, once I have a test setup with LMCE running (again).
