Problems with DD (AC3) sound

Post by edgarcillo » 22 Sep 2017, 18:25

Hello I dont really know what happened, if it was the new MrMC or the new fire TV updated I just received yesterday night but every time I try to watch a movie with DD sound it sounds like crazy, like if I would have left press one key from my keyboard, only a cliking noise. This doesnt happen with DTS or if I disable the pass-through for DD and DD+.I tried already playing the videos using different players including kodi in my computer with pass-through activated and everything sounds good this is happening only with MrMC.

Just checked and yes it is activated but I havent change anything since the last time it was working, just yesterday, The only thing I can think about is the new update I received last night for my fire tv.

Just to let you know. I disable the IEC option and the sound is back to normal so it works ok without it and have, or at least i have, issues with it.

The fire software says version 5.2.6.0 and the information that MrMc shows is android 5.1.1 Api level 2

Hello Davilla. So now that disable the IEC option I have AC3 sound back, some time it cuts a little bit after I pause/play the video but now I see that DTS s not working either, i am getting just a buzzing sound. I though it was working but i noticed had activated the DTS-HD option so i was passing the sound as PCM, After I enable the DTS passthrough I am just getting this buzzing sound.

Is there anyting i cna do to get back the DTS sound as it used to work and maybe the DD completely normal without getting cut after I pause/play the video?

Updated to version 5.2.6.0.

channels 7.1 (I have amp that can do 7.1)
passthrough and all passthrough flavors checked
IEC checked.

DTS is fine
DD (ac3) is fine
DD+ (eac3) shows multi-channel as the firetv1/2 does not have a audio sample rate of 192kHz which is required to passthough eac3.
