Plex and TrueHD on Mac Mini
I know that OS X will not pass the high definition formats over HDMI. But I noticed something weird in Plex.
I rip my movies using MakeMKV and if I include a TrueHD track, for example, Plex converts it to 7.1 LPCM as it should, but I noticed that it's at 48kHz/16bit instead of 48kHz/24 bit.
Is this an OS X limitation, a Plex Limitation, or a setup problem? I'm pretty sure that OS X will pass 8 channels of 192/24, so I don't think it's a Mac limitation.
So now I'm wondering if DTS 5.1 at 48/24 would be better than 7.1 LPCM at 48/16. My guess is that 7.1 discrete channels is the better choice, even though bit depth suffers.
Help would be appreciated.
