I don't know if it's just my setup.
But I'm noticing some weird behavior.
When I play something that is being transcoded into DD I got audio
But if I stopped the audio transcoded Into DD and went to a file that has native dts
Sometimes the audio isn't working. It's getting stuck as DD in the receiver.
I had to stop it. Then play it again and my receiver shows DTS and I got sound.
The other way around also occurs. It seems even more present. I mean try to play something with DTS audio.
Then stop it. And then try to play something with native AC3 5.1.
See if your receiver is getting stuck on DD or DTS.
Try this a couple of times and let us know
I did notice something odd when playing AAC 5.1 first. The audio was crackling and interrupted. If I play an E-AC3 or AC3 first and return to the AAC 5.1 file it plays fine. These files are all Dolby Digital Sample files which were converted from AC3 to AAC and E-AC3. I replicated this with the latest update today. I have H264 and H265 mkv videos.
I've attached a shortcut to the logfile. http://ixio/3MDd
Definitely, something is wrong.
I noticed also that when you finished playing audio over passthrough, that is being transcoded or not, after playing is done, the GUI sound audio is not present anymore.
It takes a while, I cannot precise how long, but it takes a while for the GUI sounds to be brought back. Sometimes it doesn't come back at all.
I discovered that because after I played a movie, immediately after, I went to watch some youtube and got no sound. Only after I closed Youtube and reopened it again did I get sound.
I have also 'forced' the same situation playing an AC3 5.1 movie and playing a DTS 5.1 movie. I got no sound on DTS.
Let's hope everything is being captured on the log.
Here's the log: http://ix.io/3MHs
I have DTS capable amp so I have that box ticked. Passthrough DTS samples play fine whether transcoding is on of off. I have no problems except for that one AAC 5.1 glitch which goes away on second attempt.
Lets see what happens when FFMPEG is upgraded.
