[Csnd-dev] nchnls_hw question

Subject[Csnd-dev] nchnls_hw question
working on an example for this opcode, and thus trying to understand and apply this, i am unsure what the output of nchnls_hw represents.
In the manual On init-pass idacc will contain the number of channels in the output device, and iadcc, the number of input channels.
My output for both idacc and iadcc is 32. I can not attach a screenshot from my Jack system in this list, but i have a lot less audio in and outputs. What does this opcode reveal, other than the for me useful in and outputs? What is 'hidden' for the user?
