Well, anything is possible, but that stuff seems unlikely here, since
apparently some channels get through fine. In multichannel HDMI one
sample of each channel is carried in each audio sample packet, so just
straight "packet loss" shouldn't cause this.

Which makes it even stranger, since HBR packets look exactly like ASP
packets with a few flipped bits.

Hm, the earlier non-working speaker-test commands were with -c6. What
about -c8?
