Hi Darin, played around with the software trial last night but i'm having an issue with the sound going to correct channel. The C channel is coming up as SL in the OOYH control, have checked my settings in Audio/Midi setup and everything is as set in the manual. It did work correctly a couple of times (when it did it sounded awesome) but then reverted back to wrong channel.
I'm using a MacBook Pro with Yosemite and MacGo Blu-Ray Player. I am going out of macbook using toslink to DAC.
Have you come across this issue before? I would love to purchase software but I want to make sure its going to function properly before I commit to drop.
On the Mac, I have seen the problem you are having before. It seems that some apps on OS X seem to map the audio incorrectly or use an incorrect channel numbering scheme. I found that previous versions of VLC had the same problem.
I was also not able to correct the channel mappings in the Audio/MIDI control panel.
However, you can remap the channels using the Out Of Your Head Control Panel.
At the bottom of the Out Of Your Head Control Panel, there is a Channel Mapping function.
Basically you can have different Channel Mapping settings to compensate for apps that map the channels wrong.
First on the bottom menu that says "Default", that menu lets you select the Channel Mapping preset you want to adjust. You can have up to 5 Channel Mapping presets.
Then starting with Channel 1, change the right most menu to set the speaker that Channel 1 should map to.
Then go to Channel 2, change change the right most menu to set the speaker that Channel 2 should map to.
Continue in this fashion until all 8 channels have been set.
These channel mapping presets will be saved automatically in Out Of Your Head.
But please note: In order to change the channel mappings, you must start with Channel 1 and go all the way to Channel 8. Otherwise, the Channel mapping preset might not be saved properly.
I know it's not the most user friendly interface, but at least it works and should allow you to work around incorrect channel mappings.
E-mail us if you need further explanation.
Thanks for that Darin, I had a play with the channels and found that Blu-ray player was sending to OOYH a different order than the usual.
For anyone else that might have this issue, I have mapped
1-L, 2-R, 3-SL, 4-SR, 5-C, 6-LF, 7-BL, 8-BR
Glad you got it working.
As you can see, that channel mapping is non-standard. I am not sure why some Mac apps have such strange channel mappings, but at least there is a work around.
