Just connected my WD TV Live to my AV amp and TV for the first time. I am using the component cable for the video and an optical cable for the audio. The WD TV LIve was set to digital audio.
I have a problem when playing m4v files - the DD 5.1 audi track (ac3) only appears on the AV amp as Dolby Pro Logic. I created the m4v file using handbrake and used the AC3 pass through option for the audio.
When i play the original ISO file on the WD TV Live then i see the correct Dolby Digital audio on the AV amp.
When I play the m4v file on a ps3 then i see the correct Dolby Digital audio on the AV amp.
I used the same cables and AV amp set-up for the three tests.
My conclusion is that the passthrough for ac3 5.1 DD ausio is not working… or have i missed something?
