My rips did not have DTS MA so it wasn't an issue. I'm glad that you were able to resolve it.

I actually meant 4K Hulu vs 1080p (or 720p) Hulu. The difference is not overwhelming.

I had to update my Hulu app to get this. Not particularly impressive PQ. I'd have rather seen 5.1 sound from Hulu.

jsmiddleton4, what are your Roku's audio settings? Mine are "Audio Mode = Auto" and "HDMI = Auto Detect". It's possible that the Plex client on Roku is telling the server that it can't handle DTS.

I only find those in the server settings for the web browser player; both are enabled (check marked). I'm not sure what effect they would have on the Roku app.

Reasonably, that "ULTRA HD 4K" label only shows up in the interface on devices on which you can play that kind of video; the same is true of the "HDR" label and Dolby Vision icons. My television is...

The command that I use most is "Xbox go to ..."; that alone is worth the price of admission. Sometimes I use "Xbox turn off", but since I use it almost exclusively for gaming I always have a...

I just checked and I get DTS out of Plex on Premiere+ for content featuring DTS audio, no transcoding. I wonder what the difference is? I'm running Plex Media Server 1.1.4.2747 on Win10. (Looks...

Every penny counts when multiplied by millions of sales and I have to think that it saved a few pennies at least. They also don't power Kinect through the console which was probably part of what...

Huh. The only time that I use my Premiere+ for Plex is when the soundtrack is DTS. I prefer Plex on TiVo for its 24Hz output, but for DTS tracks I get stereo out of it whereas Plex on Premiere+...

One thing that I'll say for Gjallarhorn is that its sound and haptic effects are really well done.

Supposedly it does support 1080p on some devices. I can't be absolutely sure about resolution, but I do get 24p on my TiVos (they output a 24Hz signal which they'll do if receiving 24p content).
