Does anybody know how the WD TV Live Plus handles mkv files with a 2.0 channel stereo AAC audio track, when the output is via optical s/pdif cable? Will it output the AAC bitstream, or will it convert it to 2.0 channel PCM audio?
I’m encoding DVDs with 2.0 channel AAC tracks and haven’t got the WD TV Live Plus yet, so I’m wondering if they’ll be compatible. Some of the mkv files have only the 2.0 channel AAC track and some have a 2.0 channel AAC track, plus a second 5.1 AC3 track. I have an old receiver with optical inputs that will decode AC3 and DTS (and PCM), but not AAC.
