I ripped MiB3 BD to my Mac Pro (EARLY 2009: 10.8.2, 2.66GHz Xeon, 8GB RAM). English audio choices were DTS-HD w/DTS 5.1 subset, and DD 5.1. I ripped two copies, one with only DD and one with only the DTS 5.1 subset selected. XBMC played both rips back with DD 5.1 (?). I then ripped with DTS-HD and the DTS 5.1 subset selected. XBMX showed it was playing "Lossless - DTS-HD MA 5.1 (1/2)". Selecting 2/2 showed "3/2+1 - DTS 5.1 (2/2)".
I put a copy of the DTS-HD rip onto my Mac mini (LATE 2009: 10.7.5, 2.66GHz Core 2 Duo, 4GB RAM), which is connected via Kanex Adapter/HDMI to my Onkyo 805. Playing either the copy residing on the mini or the copy residing on the Mac Pro (mini & Pro ethernet cabled to my Time Capsule), XBMC starts with "Lossless - DTS-HD MA 5.1 (1/2)" showing. However, my 805 shows that the mini is outputting DTS 5.1. Selecting 2/2 loses DTS 5.1 and I get 2-channel audio. Cannot return to DTS 5.1. Quitting and restarting XBMC gives the "Lossless - DTS-HD MA 5.1 (1/2)" DTS 5.1 again. There is no stuttering of the picture or sound during playback.
Now that's some fine feline
