  1. Soundbars
    Hello, I have Emby on my Roku 4 outputting audio over optical to my soundbar. Recently anytime I play anything besides stereo it comes out as just chirps. If I force stereo on the Roku, it plays (stereo) fine. I'm not sure if the problem is with the Roku, Emby or the soundbar. I've tried...
  2. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    I just recently set up my new SR 6014 receiver with a 5.1.4 setup. When I first tested out a show with Dolby Atmos capability I was able to switch the movie soundmode to play in Dolby atmos.. two days later, I go to play the same show and episode and the only sound modes available are DTS...
  3. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    Hi, Recently purchased this TV along with a JBL 9.1 soundbar. Unfortunately it seems I can't get Dolby Atmos sound neither from the Netflix or the Youtube app. On the soundbar I only get the "Dolby Surround" message whenever content starts. The soundbar is connected to the TV via the ARC port...
  4. Xbox Area
    Does Xbox one X support true HD for regular movie playback (not Blu ray)? 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. Once I modified to the bitstream, I have 3 options to pick, DTS or Dolby Digital...

    Installing these in ceilings soon. MLP = 13 feet from screen L and R fronts = 11 feet from each other and 14 feet from MLP Does this all look right? So, going off of that, should I also have the LR front and rear heights be 11 feet apart from each other? If I do, the angles won't be right...
  6. Home Theater Computers
    This is a bit of an odd one, and I only noticed it a couple of weeks ago...but too late to roll back any updates. As of now, no Dolby audio formats will bitstream using MPC-HC (LAVAudio Decoder), but DTS formats work flawlessly. The Dolby formats are either sent to the receiver as stereo or...

    I got an Onkyo TX-NR787 recently, open box at Best Buy, for $280, not including tax and the optional extra warranty. I haven't yet received any responses to my following two posts in the main thread for that AVR, so I'm quoting those posts here, so that anyone who might be able to answer my...

    So it is long overdue to upgrade my receiver, we just got our first 4k tv and at the end of this year we will be getting a second, probably the new Samsung QLED (unsure of model right now). Right now I am running a yamaha RX A720 and looking at going to a Denon AVR-X4400H. The reason I was...
  11. Soundbars
    Hi, I am very new to soundbars (and speakers in general). I just finished installing the soundbar, and I am wondering why the DD indicator is never green (it is just off). I updated the firmware to the latest version in Europe. I have tested to play Dolby videos from Youtube for example...
  12. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    I'm looking for a reasonably priced device which can convert the audio in an HDMI connection while preserving the video. For the audio conversion, I need Dolby-encoded surround sound, at least 5.1 channels, converted to LPCM. So the HDMI input would be video + Dolby surround sound, and the HDMI...
  13. Xbox Area
    Enveloping sound is a critical part of gaming. Up until now, the only way to get 3D immersive audio from a game has been through DST Arch rival Dolby's Atmos technology. But that's about to change, according to news broken via tweet, and it's just weeks away. Actually, not only does the tweet...
  14. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    I have a 5.1 Decoder (image attached), which take optical/AUX input and give 5.1 channel analog output. Each channel of the DAC, I connected to different amps, these amps to different speakers. How i can get 5.1/Atmos output from a USB drive ? Lets say i downloaded a blue-ray rip movie file.

  16. High Dynamic Range (HDR) & Wide Color Gamut (WCG)
    The EBU is testing UHD HDR HFR broadcasting during the 2018 European Championships. It's about time that HFR was added to the alphabet soup! I've long held that high dynamic range (HDR) and wide color gamut (WCG) are way more important to improving video-image quality than increasing the...

  18. Soundbars
    Soundbars occupy the zone between built-in TV sound and full-fledged AVR-based surround sound. Thanks to the simple installation, these slender all-in-one speakers have supplanted the "home theater in a box" as the go-to approach for affordably improving audio fidelity. TV maker Vizio sells a...
