    Default Pulse Audio dynamic source identification (for lack of a better term)

    Hi guys,

    Does anyone here know how to configure pulse audio to use only Front L&R for stereo sources (ie cd audio) and Front L&R, Rear L&R, Centre and Sub for 5.1 sources automatically. It bugs me that my stereo sources come out of every speaker, ruining the stereo field. With alsa, setting stereo sources to "plug:surround51:0" would do this nicely ie stereo came out of Front L&R and not any of the surround channels.

    Cheers

    add the following to /etc/pulse/daemon.conf:
    Code:
    enable-remixing = no
    and restart pulseaudio.

    In pulseaudio volume control, be sure to pick right choice, not "Stereo (analog) output", because this would lead to downmixing...

    It's mentioned in 'man pulse-daemon.conf' which is mentioned in the 'see also' category of 'man pulseaudio'. But yeah, it's way easier to find, if you already know what you are looking for ;-)
