Great work, thank you so much for keeping my X8H+ alive and kicking!
It all works perfectly for me with a small exception: I cannot seem to get audio directly through the optical port. I have the AML-M8AUDIO, S/PDIF selected as the audio output device and it sends audio through the HDMI cable to the TV which is fine most of the time. (and I can connect my audio amp to the TV's optical port through S/PDIF which works while the TV is on). For music though I would prefer to connect my amp directly to the X8H+ optical port while having the TV off, but I cannot seem to get that working. Any ideas, please?
