The problem is when I run Roon on bootcamp I have no such problems. What does it do, if anything? The reason for this option is that some receivers will malfunction when not sent a multi-channel stream. Yes I know about this option, but the problem is that I have a mix of multi-channel and stereo material in a variety of resolutions and when I set Roon up in the way you suggest everything is reduced to stereo.
