I recently bought a WD TV Live to replace my first gen WD TV, but after updating the firmware to 1.05.04 i’ve not been able to get sound from mkv files with a DTS stream to my receiver (connected with HDMI only) with sound output set on digital pass-through. The media files are stored on a 500GB Lacie 2,5" portable disk, which is connected to the USB port of the WD TV Live. When i change sound output to stereo i get sound, but of course that’s no solution.
I’ve tried everything i could think of:
rollback to different firmware versions namely: 1.03.49, 1.04.22 and 1.04.31
loading default factory settings
reset button on the side
disconnecting the power for some minutes
Nothing helped though and eventually i gave up and hooked up my old WD TV which plays all mkv movies with DTS stream just fine.
What else can i try? Because i’m now thinking of just returning the WD TV Live and revert to my old WD TV.
