Video/audio passthrough?

Post by box4mm » 10 Aug 2019, 12:45

I wonder if mrmc just passthrough the video/audio or if it tampers with it in any way?
Ive seen brightness / contrast settings also.

I want my files to play untouched.. Do they?

Thx

No app on apple tv can passthrough audio. They all decode and output PCM.

If you want video as untouched as possible make sure that only AVFoundation is used as the decoder in settings>video>acceleration.

Right thx, i read about the audio passthrough when i think about it.

Question regarding something else, but you seem ontop of your game so ill try.

1)
Settings - system - video output
Use Limited colour range
I have this unchecked

2)
Settings - video - acceleration
Disable limited to full video scaling
I have this unchecked

According to my tv it receives limited even though i have the above settings.
Does the appletv tvos settings override mrmc in this case?

The most logical to me is to enable both setting 1) and 2) above to get limited but clearly...

If you're using only AVFoundation as decoder those options have no effect anyway is my understanding. So, it must be tvOS.
