Okay, I think I am starting to get this all down and understand things a little more. I have a HTPC where I rip my bluray movies. I am now using MakeMKV and removing all subtitles, etc and keeping only the main feature and both english audios…
Here is my equipment
vizio 47" 240hz LCD
WDTV Live Hub
sony 5.1 home theater in box (STR-SE501 is receiver)
i have my tv hooked to my receiver via digital optical audio cable. then my WDTV and satelite are hooked to the tv via HDMI. So i get my “surround sound” with tv or movies…
that being said, I cant get the truehd audios to work when playing my WDTV ripped blurays. i read that its possible when its run through a receiver. Do i need a newer truehd decoding receiver for this to work?
would I even be able to tell difference in trueHD vs what its playing now? I think its just normal DD right? there is a blue light on my receiver that is supposed to light up when its decoding or something, and it doesnt light up, so im not sure whats even going on when playing
