I recently purchased the WD LIve TV Hub with 1TB and after setting it up the firmware was updated (2.08.13). I have connected my Hub to my Amp (Yamaha A1) via the optical and made the necessary changes in the Audio settings i.e. ticked DTS, Dolby Digital etc.
I have tried to watch movies (MP4, avi, MKV etc) and noticed that that I do not get Dolby Digital surround sound from my amp even though I know for a fact that the audio stream is Dolby digital 5.1:
When I stream through via the PS3 Media Server and by using transcoding, I get Dolby Digital sound through my AMP.
I then tested the same movie file through my PS3 and voila I have Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound.
I have also tried unticking the DTS, Dolby Digital in the Audio Settings and ticking the AAC, when I do this and play the movie file, the AMP shows Dolby Digital but there is NO sound.
I also tried to roll back the firmware several times and tried the above points 1, 2 and 3 but still can not get it to work.
I am surprised that I cannot get this to work for the life of me as I have tried everything in the settings etc. I wonder if anyone else has had any similar experiences as I have and if they managed to resolve this issue.
