I bought a WDTV Live last week and I´m very happy with it in general. Unfortunately, I can´t play any digital DTS Sound via my plasma tv. The plasma should handle it, because its a brand new p46gw20.
WDTV Live and the plasma are connected via HDMI. When I set sound to stereo, everything works fine - except the sound sounds like ■■■■, because its downmixed. This is no solution! I tried a lot of 1080p material. Is there a fix coming?
When I use the optical output, it works but I need a solution via HDMI, because I need the optical slot of my audio receiver for something different.
Welcome to the forums.
Actually, the Plasma *won’t* handle it because it needs to be decoded.
The Live only passes through 5.1 surround (either DTS or AC3) – it’s up to your AVR to decode it. In the absence of one you’ll need to set it to Stereo to downmix.
Thank you for a quick answer.
So I need to use my one and only optical slot.
You could purchase a manual switch that allows you to connect the Toslink from multiple input devices to one output device or vice versa. Monoprice.com have one, for example. .
whoooa. Didn´t think about this!
I just need to get one of this here in germany.

Ocean: What are you using as a DTS decoder? What version of firmware is on your Live?
