  2. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    I started getting into Surround Sound audio when I bought a Turtle Beach headphone for my Xbox 360. Before that when dad asked how much it would cost to set up the main surround system in the room they said the labor alone would cost $10,000 as a quick estimate. At around the same time my...

    I have the Lossless video file of the Texas Instruments DLP trailer, that you see in the pre show of the commercial theaters even today. This is not the YouTube version which is not in Dolby.

  5. HDMI Q&A - The One Connector World
    My laptop has only a HDMI 2.0 port(not 2.1). Will I be able to pass through lossless Dolby TrueHD or DTS-HD 5.1 audio alongside a 1080p video feed to my AVR?

  7. Xbox Area
    Hi All, I download the Dolby App, and changed the settings. The Xbox detects Atmos, but when I try to play content, I hear a cracking sound, and a little bid of sound. I've tried things suggested in different post through the net, swapped cables... Connection: from Xbox to Receiver, to TV...
  8. PlayStation Area
    On 23/03/22 Sony released a new firmware on PS5 that makes ALLM mandatory on Sony tvs so you can't change picture mode to other than Game.

I was playing some content through Plex and the true HD is converted to PCM since I have it configured to uncompressed 5.1 in Xbox settings.
