http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, All new here and I need some help ;) I am using jack together with brutefir to listen to music for a rather long time now on a dualcore atom machine. It handles up to eight channels without problems. Now I want to kick the receiver out of my home-cinema setup and go for the brutefir way here as well. I just got a m-audio fasttrack ultra 8R, wich works out of the box with jack. Very good. The problem now is, that I use xbmc for video playback and xbmc simply has no option to output to jack. I had a similar problem with my audio-player and solved it using the alsa-bridge (alsa_in (Hardware)
