When i use the media player and feed a movie ( mkv´s with DTS audio codec ) the digital link works, and the receiver "scream".
When i try to feed the receiver with audio only ( mp3, aac, m4a ) using the digital link, it does not play. I have to shift the source using an analog input only.
my AV receiver is quite old, do not have HDMI.
I have hook the media player using the SPDIF outpu. Since i have used it for movies with true 5 chaneles audio, i do not change settings, but i will look it up !!
I am on the virgo to acquire an used sound card so i can feed with signal to the receiver. Im not sure how the 2 digital sound processing ( first made by sound card chipset, second made by receiver chipset ) will behave !
i read the OM of the receiver itself - http://www.theatresystem-manual.com/...n_DPL660HT.pdf - and i believe it have DTS and Dolgy Digital / Prologic II.
It should handle an audio source in 2 chanels, and activate all speakers, and it does that only in analog mode. Im looking to clear this out, since i might start to acquire audio files in Ac3 or ACC file format from spotify to playback on this system. Not sure this will work using only analog mode
