DEPRICATED (Analog Audio Outputs)

This page is depricated and here for historical purposes only. Go back to Audio

Onboard decoding of formats for analog multichannel output

LPCM

  • Multichannel 5.1 LPCM
    • Seems to be working ok
  • Multichannel 6.1 LPCM
    • Checked with Crank - works ok
  • Multichannel 7.1 LPCM
    • Need to Check

Dolby Formats

  • Dolby Digital
    • TBD
  • Dolby Digital EX
    • Does not work correctly
    • Confirmed this with Disturbia on Bluray
    • An external processor connected via SPDIF sees it with the EX flag and provides the center surround, but the onboard decoder does not provide this.
    • The physical connections of the setup were re-verified using test tones to make sure something wasn't connected.
    • No signal in the Center Surrounds (A.K.A. back left and right) from the onboard decoder when an outboard decoder does.
  • Dolby Digital Plus
    • Seems like it works
  • Dolby TrueHD
    • Dolby TrueHD does not come out of the multichannel outputs.
    • Two Channel only
    • This is in the manual (page 10), and confirmed by users.
    • We hope this will get fixed

DTS Formats

  • DTS 5.1
    • TBD
  • DTS 6.1 ES
    • Does not work correctly
    • Confirmed this with Disturbia on Bluray
    • An external processor connected via SPDIF sees the DTS ES 6.1 stream and provides the center surround, but the onboard decoder does not provide this.
    • The physical connections of the setup were re-verified using test tones to make sure something wasn't connected.
    • No signal in the Center Surrounds (A.K.A. back left and right) from the onboard decoder when an outboard decoder does.
    • We hope this will get fixed
  • DTS-HD High Resolution Audio
  • DTS-HD Master Audio
    • DTS-HD Master Audio does not come out of the multichannel outputs, we think.
    • It is not a straight forward test, since there is multichannel audio coming out, but the assumption is that it is the standard "DTS Core" embedded in DTS-HD.
    • There are various reports that this is to be fixed in a firmware release due in either January or February 2008.
