I received the WE TV LIve Plus for Christmas. It is set up as follows: HDMI to Denon AVR-3808ci. Audio settings: Digital. My problem is I only get stereo sound from the HD videos. The Denon shows that ony 2 channel sound is being received. It will play 5.1 sound in ‘Music’, but not in “Video”. I know this as I downloaded a music only test file and can hear all of my speakers, and the Denon displays that 5.1 sound is being received. I also no that my system will correctly pass on HD audio/video over HDMI, as with the same settings/cable I get 5.1 sound and 1080p display when the signal originates from my blu-ray player.
I am making an asumption that some of my video files are 5.1 sound, including the video files on WD sample files. However if someone could point me to a short HD audio/video download which I could copy to my USB, I could confirm my problem. Or if someone could suggest another means of confirm my sound problem. Note I can coreclty read and access files over my home network and also over the internet.
