I decided to take a picture of the front of my AVR (Pioneer VSX 1016) to show the AAC decoder exists and the indictors illuminated. Trouble is the WD TV Live does not seem to be demuxing the audio properly from the MP4 container (or youtueb for that matter). But I have not ruled out the AVR yet either. Decoding/or downmixing on the WD TV Live side is not desirable. First my old school ARV does not do HDMI switchiing only pass-through. And secondly, I hate matrixed sound. When I saw everything light up at first I got excited. It was short-lived when all I heard was silence. Cheers
I don’t expect this issue to be resolved here. I have read all the threads about the broken AAC in the WD TV Live. I have also read the threads about the rarity of AAC decoding AVRs. Since the VSX is a very popular RX I thought I would put this out there for my follow VSXers. You are not alone.
