  1. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    Hello, It's been a long while since I last posted here. Thanks for reading. My question is whether anyone who owns a SONY Bravia X900F or X800E series running Android OS V. 9 Kernel 4.9.128, released in October last year, has experienced a problem with the TV holding the Audio Output setting...
  2. Surround Music Formats
    Ich benötige ein Gerät, vorzugsweise einen HDMI-Wandler, mit dem ich das bevorstehende 4K60hz YUV 4: 4: 4 Dolby Dogital-Signal in ein 4K60hz YUV 4: 4: 4 LPCM 5.1-Tonsignal umwandeln kann. Hat jemand eine Idee, wie ich mein Problem beheben kann?
  3. Xbox Area
    Does an Xbox One process Dolby Digital and DTS audio streams from streaming services? How do Dolby Atmos and DTS:X work on Xbox One? What are the pros and cons of how they are implemented? I have an Xbox One S, an Onkyo TX-NR787 A/V receiver, and a 5.0 speaker setup. I don't yet own a...
  4. Home Theater Gaming
    So here's the problem I've seen a lot of people having: Windows will not recognise 5.1 speakers when connecting my PC directly to my Samsung 4K HDR TV through HDMI. I have tried changing EDID, creating custom INFs for the TV nothing works. The only way I managed to work was to connect an SPDIF...
  5. Soundbars
    Samsung HW-N700 Soundbar  Samsung's dedication to improving the fidelity of its soundbars through science has paid generous dividends over the past few years. Its Sound+ series of soundbars provide great looks and fidelity for the money, I reviewed two models last year—the HW-MS650 ( $427.99...
  6. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    In particular I am wondering what the difference is between Dolby Digital (used in movie sound mode) and Dolby Digital + Dolby Surround (used in auto sound mode). I am using a 5.1 setup. Also, is auto similar to direct or pure direct (all three are under the PURE sound mode button on the remote)?
  7. Soundbars
    Polk Audio used CES 2017 to announce a budget soundbar, the Signa S1. It is the company's first home theater model to retail for under $200, with a MSRP of $180. This low profile model is only 2" high yet offers deep bass thanks to the inclusion of a wireless sub. The Signa S1 can decode...
  8. Home Theater In A Box
    I was under the impression that HDMI-ARC between the TV and Home Theater system will allow 5.1 from all incoming HDMI inputs. That was the answer that "Samsung Manufacturer" replied to me in the amazon forum before I bought the Samsung HT-J5500W, a AV Receiver/BluRay unit. Then I bought this...
  9. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    First of all: long-time reader, first time poster. I've been scouring forum after forum trying to find some help and decided I should go ahead and ask for help. I finally "cut the cord" on cable and luckily can pick up a number of quality stations with an outdoor antenna. The channels coming...
  10. DVD Players (Standard Def)
    So i have the Panasonic DVD-S52 and it can do DTS and Dolby. For some reason it doesnt send DTS or Dolby audio, instead its sending PCM audio according to My receiver (Yamaha RX-675). I have turned on DTS Digital Surround to Bitstream and Dolby Digital to Bitsteam, and i have turned off PCM...
  11. Surround Music Formats
    Hey all, I have a new podcast up on iTunes devoted toward surround sound music production. Since it's one of the (very) few podcasts with an actual Dolby Digital 5.1 audio track, I thought you guys might find it of interest. iTunes podcast link here. From the iTunes description: "Guitarist...
  12. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Hi, I have a Yamaha HTR-4067 AV Receiver. I watch many sources that are audio encoded using AC3 audio (HDTV). Am I correct is my understanding that this format contains 5.1 channel information (meaning that the options under the movie tab would apply)? Thanks Alan
  13. Home Theater Gaming
    I recently purchased a Xbox One system, and for the life of me I cannot figure out how to get anything but multichannel to work. I had a Xbox 360 prior, and everything worked fine, same setup, and configuration. I am running all audio quest chocolate HDMI's through my whole system, all in the...
  14. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    i use an optical cable to connect my pc to my receiver (s/pdif) because my receiver does not have hdmi and it is hard to run 3 50 ft rca cables across my room. My sound card does not support dolby digital live. i was wondering if i could compress all audio on my pc or at the very least convert...
  15. Latest Industry News
     One of the things I love about being an AV journalist is getting invited to industry events, especially when they're held almost literally in my back yard. Last night, I attended just such an event—a pre-Oscars party to celebrate the nominees for Best Sound Editing and Sound Mixing, hosted by...
