Hello All. Thanks in advance for anyone who may be able to assist. I have been running the WD HD Live for roughly a year now with very good success. Until the last few weeks, I have been running my movies (blu-ray and dvd) off a WD Elements external hard drive. Until recently, I had very good success playing .ISO and .MKV DVD movies and .MKV Blu-ray movies. Now, I am not able to play .ISO versions of my DVD and Blu-ray movies - WD HD Live no longer recognizes the .ISO format. That is not the main reason for this post, but if anyone has a suggestion on how to get that file format recognized I would appreciate it.
The main reason for this post is due to an issue that I’ve been experiencing with the Audio. My Pioneer VSX-1018AH receiver automatically detects the audio format (DTS, for example, will automatically be detected and appear on the screen of the receiver) and plays the movie in that audio format. That was occurring fine when I was connecting the WD Elements external hard drive via USB directly to the WD HD Live. Recently, I ran a Cat-6 ethernet cable through my basement to my WD HD Live in my living room. All connections are working perfectly and I am able to play movies directly from my Synology DS1511+ without any skips, delays, etc. The only oddity is that my Pioneer VSX-1018AH receiver no longer automatically detects that a movie is running DTS audio like it used to when connected directly to the WD HD Live via USB. The movies only run in standard Dolby Digital. I get audio and video without a problem, but I would like the proper audio format to be detected automatically (like it used to) rather than just defaulting to standard Dolby Digital audio format.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this?
In case it is helpful, these are the relevant components within my home theater system:
- WD HD Live (firmware 1.04.22)
- Pioneer VSX-1018AH (connected to WD HD Live via HDMI)
- Synology DS1511+ NAS (5 - 2TB hard drives running RAID5 - appears as Media Center in WD HD Live)
