I have a WD TV Live HD Media Player with firmware version 1.02.21. The media player is connected to an external hard disk, containing amongst others media file with digital audio. The media player is also connected to a dobly digital 7.1 receiver via an optical audio cable and an analog cable. My audio receiver automatically switches to the appropriate setting depending on the audio type. My issue is that when I set the “Audio output” settings in the WD media player to “Digital” it often happens that during playback the sounds stops. When I disconnect the optical audio cable and reconnect it several times the sound reappears (temporarily). When I set my “Audio output” settings to “Stereo” the same file plays the audio (of course not in digital format as preferred) correctly.
Could anyone give me some advice?
