I've searched the forum for posts regarding the posibility of descrete mono input for external audio in both channels (L/R). Sorry for any inconvenience caused if this is already covered, but i have not been able to come across any discussion regarding this?

With my 5DmkII and v.2.3 i'm able to have one channel of discrete mono-in. But at the same time i have to accept the internal mic as input-source on the remaing mono-input channel.

I can avoid the internal mic by choosing external stereo audio input - but then it is not w. discrete input (i.e. the stero channels are not fully separated in discrete L/R - instead both channels are then present in either channel L/R).

It would be great with discrete external mon input in both channels; then i could have i.e. a microport in Left and a (camera mounted) shotgun on Right channel?

Thx for the great work with Magic Lantern :)

External stereo seems as though it should be discrete L/R channels; otherwise it's not stereo, right?

do you want separated wav-files or what? reality is, you've got two asymmetrical mono inputs via this 3.5mm jack. you can use them as you want.

At least in my 550d when stereo is set, I got the same sound but 10db more silent on other channel. Seems that they are not separated properly.
But I use this to recover sound in case of overdrive.
Too many Canon cameras.
