As I suspected, there\'s no digital audio. No I2S...[/quote]
I don\'t remember i2s ever being mentioned as a contender on the board. Besides it still has HDMI if you want digital audio, and a high quality 3.5mm analog audio jack. You\'ll be just fine. As my wife would say, \"Ah the troubles one must bare in a first world country!\"
If you want to interface directly to an audio dac chip, you need PCM and HDMI is useless. Don\'t even mention it.
Audio in HDMI is mixed with video. You need an AV amp to extract the digital audio and deal with HDCP, if present.
I\'ll check the audio quality on the analog audio jack too, but I doubt on the \"high quality\" on a portable device, don\'t get me wrong.
I\'m an audiophile, who usually builds and/or mods his own audio gear.

On I2S: Yes it has I2S (and PCM)
The number of different things the GPIOs can do is larger then specified in Liz\' list.
If Liz would have written the complete list down 95% of the readers would not have understood it and the number of emails would have gone up exponentially. Also we will not have Linux drivers yet for a lot of these special I/O modes . So for now we KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid). To use two well known phrases:
+ Watch this space.
+ But don\'t hold your breath.
Ah, there is hope, then.
Thanks for confirming, Gert.
