Does mrmc still handle hd audio files as multi pcm?

Post by Selest » 30 Oct 2018, 18:40

Is DTSHD and TRUEHD decoded as PCM? and is it basically an hd lossless pcm that is sent to the receiver since the receiver is not displaying the truehd/dts symbol?

Correct, All tvOS apps can only send multichannel PCM.

DTSHD and TRUEHD are decoded and sent as multichannel PCM.

But is that PCM stream coming from ATV4K a lossless stream that is the same as the DTSHD or TRUEHD or is it a downgraded stream similar to Dolby digital. Will there be a difference in sound between that PCM stream and DTSHD/TRUEHD?

Excellent! thanks. Is there a section I can go to so I can find the exact settings I need to set for both mrmc and atv4k?

Out of curiosity, how does infuse handles HD audio differently from MrMC if at all?

What about HD-audio tracks in the videos?

Same method is used by both apps, the HD lossless track is decoded and sent as PCM.
Apple TV 4K / NVIDIA Shield -> Denon X6500W 7.2.4 -> LG OLED65C6P
Channels DVR w/ HDHomeRun Connect Quattro

I doubted so but was asking myself why infuse needs to license DTS etc. and MrMC/Kodi not, or do they?
