DTS-HD Master audio capability

So I have both the Xtreamer prodigy black and the WD TV live latest model. I have them both connected to my Denon AVR-3310CI. When I select bitstream through HDMI on the prodigy it will display as DTS-HD Master for my 1080p blurays with DTS-HD Master audio and the HD Audio light will come on. When i select digital passthrough via HDMI only on the WDTV playing the exact same files it will only show as DTS SUROUND and the HD Audio light does not display.

So I think there should be a full bitstream option available or at least a way for the DTS-HD Master audio to be used




etc etc…

If you do have just the Live and not the Live Hub then you’re in the wrong forum.

Just FYI, the WDTV and most of the other more popular first-party big brand media players can’t stream DTS-HD due to some licensing issues. The Live Hub can bitstream Dolby TrueHD through HDMI but not DTS-HD. Instead, it will just pass through the DTS core file. There isn’t really anything we can do about that because these licensing issues take ages to get resolved, if they even are a priority for the company. It’s the more obscure third-party type of media players that can stream DTS-HD and all other lossless bluray audio formats because they aren’t officially licensed so they just kind of adopted the ability to play that back under the table.
