Surround Center-sound out of wrong speaker

Hi

Just purchaced an ATV4 and installed MrMC on it. Everything works fine, accept the sound.

I have a 7.1 cappable reciever, running the ATV4 via HDMI directly to the reciever.

But when the movie is i dolby DTS, the sound that is supposed to come out of the center speaker, is comming out of the rear surround speaker.. You know when people speaks ect. That is realy realy annoying. I have tried setting it to 5.1, same thing. When i set it to 2.0, the sound comes out correctly from the center speaker, but then it is only on stereo (obviosly)

All other sounds on the appleTV is OK. Altså movies from the app store plays on the ATV is as it is supposed to. I changed my ATV2 out, to this ATV4, and there was no problem on the ATV2 either (With kodi)

Any ideas?

Same issue for me. I ran my DTS-HD MA 5.1 sound test file and here's how they're mapped:

DTS-HD MA 5.1 (passthrough enabled - passed as DTS)
Front Left --> Front Left
Center --> Center
Front Right --> Front Right
Right Surround --> Right Surround
Left Surround --> Left Surround
LFE --> LFE

DTS-HD MA 5.1 (passthrough disabled -- passed as PCM)
Front Left --> Front Left
Center --> Right Surround
Front Right --> Front Right
Right Surround --> Center
Left Surround --> LFE
LFE --> Left Surround



Edit: Fixed center mapping

Tried running Plex instead. Sound is great, and as it supossed to.

So it is only when using MrMC and DTS.

But i would like to use MrMC (as i also pay'd for it), so if anyone have a fix for it - let me know.

I've got this problem as well. DTS and Dolby Digital audio via pass through works great but with PCM I'm getting center sound out of right rear. I have a bunch of video files with 5.1 AAC audio that get messed up when played with mrmc. Infuse plays these just fine.

If you have autoupdate set in tvOS, it will autoupdate.

We will be pushing v2.2 up soon, then it takes 3-4 days for Apple approval.
