Since I installed the latest update, in 1.05.18, I have problem to configure the sound in Pass-Through

Before I could play videos with sound MPEG or WMA by setting on Numeric Pass-Through HDMI, and since I have installed the 1.5.18 I lost the sound on these videos, except on videos in DOLBY or DTS…

Anyone know if this is a bug or is it normal?

Because if I want to have the sound with all videos, without returning all the time in the configuration menu, I do configure it on STEREO  :frowning:

PS : Sorry for my bad English, I’m French  ^^

Thanks !

After updating to 1.05.18 finally i can see my m2ts file but…without dolby digital audio!!! 

All file m2ts, mkv, with dolby digital cannot be hear in multichannel but only in stereo !!! (DTS ok)

Please, fix soon this bug. Anyway great delusion with the wd tv live streaming firmware… 

Resolved content playback issues with MPEG2 and MPEG4 BluRay ISO, M2TS and .TS.

Unfortunately, I am still dealing with the problem that I can not play the VIDEO_TS directory. After 2 or 3 seconds the stuttering starts. Sometimes the stuttering is that heavy the movie freezes.

After I convert the VIDEO_TS files into an ISO I can play the DVD files.

I reported this issue to the frontoffice support department of WD a few weeks ago. The frontoffice handed it over to their backoffice a few days ago after I sent MediaInfo. I am awaiting their reaction.
