I was wondering if there is any consideration currently being given to including the ability to play multichannel FLACs on future SB-system development, in particular sending a digital bitstream out the HDMI port? If anyone could give me any information, I'd greatly appreciate it!

There is no future Squeezebox development. The line was discontinued about a year ago.

I know -- like anyone else frequenting these forums -- that Logitech stopped producing the Squeezebox line. I'm referring to developments such as Community Squeeze, players like SqueezeLite, and the like.

I have asked this before--most recently after learning that the Wandboard can output audio via HDMI--and have received answers indicating that the code is very much built around 2-channel audio in a way that would be very difficult to alter.
