My Oppo's in the shop right now, so I'm down to my PS3 for playback. I read through the PS3 FAQ
on getting simultaneous audio out on HDMI & optical, and I set my sound settings to do audio multi-output and set the outputs for bitstream. I can see that the optical signal is active because of the red light coming out of my optical cable that's feeding into the PS3.
However, my 340C simply doesn't react to the signal.
I just tested the Mede8er MED600X3D media player in order to be able to play 3D .iso files and have both HD audio and spdif simultaneously. The optical output is also active because of the red light coming out but my MCI-2P does not receive a signal. When switching the movie audio from DTS-MA to regular DTS is does receive the signal and my MCI-2P syncs but of course this is not what we are looking for (in the case we don t have HD audio).
I do know that simultaneously optical out and HDMI out (for HD audio) works on the Oppo players (but they don t support 3D .iso anymore) and on the Panasonic Blu-Ray players (I have the BDP-110 which is also Cinavia free
I use my HTPC for 2D movies because the 'D-Box MPC-BE solution' works flawlessly for our purpose (HD audio+D-Box). The problems are 3D movies...... They cannot be played on a regular software player like MPC-BE. You have Powerdvd and Total Media Theater but both do not support dual audio out. (requested this already with them but they won t make it for the tiny group of D-Box users
For 3D this leaves you with a stand-alone player like the Panasonic (because the Oppo does not support .iso anymore). I m at the start of testing some Media Streamers. I now first tested the Mede8er (which is one of the best ( read bug-free) Media Players out there) but this does not work. Going to look into other Media Players.
If only D-Box would release a HDMI solution for us existing D-Box users I would buy this new D-Box decoder immediately.
