DewipeterS: sure. Except there's more channels, but through a huffman encoder at it and you'd still be alright
farseer_jetscreamer: oh
jetscreamerlook for the S
DewipeterS: "throw" even
peterSDewi: more than 8 channels? where do they go? nobody has more than 8 speakers, do they? what's the point in transmitting more channels?
DewipeterS: well, modified huffman. Those lossless audio zip things
peterS: oh, sorry, you said that
farseer_jetscreamer: thanks, that cleared out some :)
stewpeterS: the same reason people need 5 blades in their razors for shaving
jetscreameri got one of those in the mail stew... works good
DewipeterS: well 12Mbps is pushing 10baseT a bit past its limits, but like I say, a decent lossless zipper would easily crush the hell out of those mostly-empty, mostly-identical channels
jetscreamernot for longish beards though, like after 3 days...
peterSDewi: I'm just saying, with _no_ compression, and 8 channels, well, really you don't need 96 kHz, 44.1 or 48 kHz would be plenty, so even with no compression you don't even need to transmit a megabyte per second
DewipeterS: I wonder if FLAC supports >2 channels these days
peterSDewi: well, it's not like you can even find 10baseT transceivers anymore, the bottom-of-the-line 100baseT card is well under US$10. so.
DewipeterS: if nothing else, CAT5 is the king of all cables because I never break anything trying to plug them in backwards
peterSDewi: though if you can keep it under 10 megabits, I suppose you could make it use RJ11 phone cords. _that_ would be amusing to the high-end audio crowd, I'm sure.
actionDewi laughs.
Dewilaughs.
farseer_jetscreamer: why is cupsd started at all runlevels? and even, why is it named cupsys? :S makes no sence..
DewipeterS: indeed
jetscreamerfarseer_: those are symlinks that are run when you enter the respective runlevel
peterS"yes, this is a phone cord, and we're doing a lot more than 8 kHz mulaw mono"
jetscreamerfarseer_: the real files are in /etc/init.d
GuerinpeterS: heh
farseer_jetscreamer: yeah i know. but seems odd its linked on all levels..
Guerinall the cool kids now are about wireless speakers
jetscreamerfarseer_: in debian, all runlevels are the same by default, and you can mod them
!runlevel
dpkg0 is halt, 1 is single user, 2, 3, 4, 5 are multiuser, 6 is reboot. By default 2, 3, 4 and 5 are identical (no graphic/non-graphic runlevels), but you can configure this if you wish. Read /usr/share/doc/sysvinit/*; read /etc/init.d/README; man update-rc.d; if that doesn't make sense, consider installing rcconf or file-rc instead.
Guerinnotwithstanding the fact that the radio transmission introduces interference
peterSGuerin: are those digital too, then? or is this RF analog?
GuerinpeterS: i think it runs on bluetooth or something similar
DewipeterS: not much digital in wireless yet
peterS: but some do it
farseer_jetscreamer: oh rcconf :)
peterSbluetooth doesn't seem suitable for home theater audio - range is iffy, bandwidth is not all that high for multiple speakers
jetscreamerwhat is the cable used for cable?
Guerinyeah, i don't know
peterSjetscreamer: 75 ohm coax, I think?
jetscreamercoax?
