I searched around multiple forums and have not found information regarding this issue. Is it possible for the WD TV to do “no decoding” and just pass all the audio for the AV receiver to decode?
Issue: there are some videos (mkv) with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio tracks. There are a few that produce no sound or down sample the sound to 2.0 stereo. The rest of the videos appear to work fine. Thought it was just an issue with the audio track for those particular videos. But, the same video worked on a Roku with sound. The Roku performed a full passthrough and the AV receiver decoded the audio track fine.
Can the WD TV do the same full passthrough? Don’t like the option of hacking the WD TV, but is there an option to do that and force it do to full Passthrough and let the AV receiver handle the audio decoding?
Tried the same video on WD TV Hub, WD TV SMP and the recently released WD TV. None of these can play the audio correctly for those particular videos while the Roku can. I would prefer to get this working on the WD TV.
The AV receiver is an Elite Pioneer receiver.
Thanks for the help.
