I have several artists’ folders that are in WMA Lossless format converted using Easy CD-DA Extractor. I have the WD SMP set to HDMI passthrough, AUTO mode. The SMP is connected to my Sony HTCT 100 Soundbar/Receiver.
These files will not play, and instead simply skip through from first to last and no error is reported.
Is the SMP supposed to be downconverting/decoding or something if my receiver is not supporting this codec? Does the SMP support WMA Lossless at all? If so, is it picky about the exact conversion settings used for this file type? I’m relatively new to home theater setup, so I may have things set up incorrectly. Would I be better off leaving the files in FLAC format in my library?
