Hi, I'm hoping to get some help with an issue I'm seeing with dlna streaming.
Kit involved is an oppo 103, Marantz SR7009 and a Synology DS413j all hard wired on a gigabit network. The video file is an mkv created with Handbrake and includes the full DTS HD MA 7.1 track only.
This first clip is a video of the oppo streaming from the synology whilst set to output lpcm, note the sound 'crack' at approx 19secs.
This second clip is exactly the same file but the oppo is now set to bitstream.
The noise on the second clip , again from 19secs, is coming from all the speakers and is exceptionally loud.
I've recreated the mkv several times with different versions of handbrake but the result is always the same. My previous avr , a Denon 3312 exhibited the very same issue. It appears on other mkv files too, especially (but not exclusively) those with 7.1 audio.
The issue is consistent even if the mkv is played back from a USB device plugged directly into the player.
Playing the original BD is trouble free.
To me the issue seems to be that the Oppo is not passing the bitstream through cleanly, if the problem was with the mkv then why is the lpcm outputted version much cleaner? I'd expect the decoder in the avr to be the more up to date of the two since it's the more recent product (notwithstanding firmware updates).
All firmwares are up to date and I've already tried swapping HDMI cables with no change noticed. Would really appreciate any comments you guys may have...
I will be reporting the issue to Oppo but thought I'd try here too!
