I just picked up one of these units from a local Frys...
1. .dts files
I have a shared hard drive attached to my win7 computer. Neo can see and play my .ac3 music files just fine (I'm using folder navigation for now, and I have the unit set to passthrough via HDMI to my Integra 9.9 preamp). However, it does not see any .dts files (I have Neo set to passthrough dts via HDMI in the audio setup). Since product specs list dts (passthrough) for audio this is a bug, right?
FWIW, I did get the DLNA "Play To" working, kind of (more about this later if I can get #2 below to work). From J. River Media Center I was able to play some 2 channel .FLAC and even 5.1 .ac3 files. But when I tried to "Play To" with .dts files it did not work.
2. 4 channel FLAC files
I have a large collection of quadraphonic music in the form of 4 channel FLAC files. I find that even though 5.1 FLAC files (96kHz/24bit ripped from DVD-Audio) play fine the 4.0 FLAC files (96/24 ripped from DVD-Audio of converted quad) do not!! All I get is some sort of super slow low volume distortion (files were played by navigating to the file in the Neo via folder navigation)
The product specs for FLAC are up to 5.1channels and 192kHz, so I'm well within product spec. J River Media Center, Foobar etc... play all these FLAC files just fine on my computer, and mediainfo does not show any issue with these files that I can see.
Anyone know if 4 channel FLAC maybe was not tested even though it is listed as being supported? Any ideas how to make 4 channel FLAC work?
If 4 channel FLAC can't be played this would be a HUGE disappointment (a deal-breaker in fact). Thanks for any help!!!
