I have the 2nd gen of WD TV Live and it works fine for me, except the bitstream of the HD audio. I have lots of MKVs with HD audio included, Live can bitstream the Dolby TrueHD but can’t do DTS-HDMA, only DTS core is bit streamed. And WD states it is because of the license restriction that I think doesn’t make sense for bit streaming to my receiver.
If anyone has got the new WD TV Play, could you please help check if it has the capability of bitstream the DTS-HDMA audio? Someone in other post says it will bitstream the DTS and DTS-HDMA, but it is really strange to me that an entry level model supports it but the Live doesn’t. Has WD solve the license problem in some way? Please someone who has got the Play help to confirm it, really appreciated it.
