Default Firewire audio out to capable receiver?

Just "kinda" DIY but here it goes anyway...

Has anyone information about this? receivers are actually integrated "sound cards" with amps - are there drivers available for Windows systems that present the receivers to the computer system as 5.1 or 7.1 capable "soundcards" ?

This would be nice for HTPC - instead of going analog & digital again, straight directsound output to your receiver.

Did anyone try to hook up audio stuff to a PC and see what gets discovered?

Only link I found that even slightly hints in this direction is this link...


ASIO/WDM Driver for Professional Audio Devices with IEEE 1394 Interface

Thesycon designed and implemented a generic device driver that is used for a set of professional audio devices with IEEE 1394 interface. The driver provides an interface to ASIO, WDM and GSIF. The driver implements isochronous audio streaming according to the following standards: IEC 61883-1, IEC 61883-6, IEC 60958-1, IEC 60958-3, IEC 61937-5.

Furthermore, the driver implements AV/C connection management and an AV/C controller according to 1394 TA specifications.

The work was done under contract to a client company.
Thanks for all info on this subject.

PS. Seems that the latest OS X versions have a firewire audio core driver that might have this capability.

Guess no-one has experience with this - I'll look further into it and get back to you.
