You might remember my efforts to get 5.1 sound through an USB soundcard? Well it has worked fine, but now, with the new TV I have another signal source, so I bought an old Yamaha Dolby box, three amps and decoder and three toslink inputs.
Problem is that I cannot get 5.1 over toslink on the Vero. If I understand correctly I should set the soundcard to passthrough, but there, underpassthrough I only see the built in soundcard HDMI output.
Excellenti writeup yes. According to it I should select the internal AML-M8AUDIO HDMI&SPDIF, 2 channels and enable passthrough, but the problem is that I cannot select AML-M8AUDIO SPDIF as the passthrough device. Only AML-M8AUDIO HDMI?
If I add my USB souncard, I can select SPDIF on that and I get full 5.1 so that should in essence solve the problem, using something I already have, but not being able to use the built-in toslink irks me.
Could this be of my own doing? But I cleared out everything I had put in asound.conf in the past and still the selections I have for passthrough device are:

To get a better understanding of the problem you are experiencing we need more information from you. The best way to get this information is for you to upload logs that demonstrate your problem. You can learn more about how to submit a useful support request here.
Depending on the used skin you have to set the settings-level to standard or higher, in summary:
enable debug logging at settings->system->logging
reboot the OSMC device twice(!)
reproduce the issue
upload the log set (all configs and logs!) either using the Log Uploader method within the My OSMC menu in the GUI or the ssh method invoking command grab-logs -A
publish the provided URL from the log set upload, here
Thanks for your understanding. We hope that we can help you get up and running again shortly.
Thanks for verifying that and now it works for me. I wonder if, initially, something else was out of whack and then it should have worked, but I blindly assumed it did not as the passthrough device was grayed and said “HDMI”? Anyway, now the Yamaha processor work just fine for both 5.1 and DTS Ans wife can get surround from both TV and Vero. HAppy days!
