MPEG-TS with Mpeg 2 audio does not play (they do with the media player of my Panasonic Viera TV)


#1

Hi,

Today I use the media player functionality in my Panasonic Viera TV to play MPEG-TS video via DLNA.

My WD TV Live Hub player cannot play these files. The WDTV Live seems to be able to play them when I convert the Mpeg audio to Dolby Digital audio. However this should not be required given the specifications of the WD TV LIve hub.

My question:

  • Is this a known problem?
  •  Is it something that is worked on to fix in a later firmware update?

Thanks for helping
