FLAC audio files always play well, even 24bit-96Khz audio, sent over the HDMI from my WDTV-smp to my reciever but video files (mkv) with FLAC audio only show the video without any sound. I have tried playing them by streaming fromTwonky on a WD MyBookLive, by a network share connection and on local storage. All fail to play the sound. The same files play fine (with audio) on my computer in VLC.
Multi-channel audio in other mkv files always plays fine from the WDTV-smp. I have been able to make this type of file usable by re-encoding them to change the audio to a mp3 format but since they are music videos I would rather keep them in the lossless format.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
