    As the topic suggests. Is it possible? I know it was with mytrailers, but that's not really working for me after 1.2 beta svns...

    This is not an issue of MediaPortal or OnlineVideos, only Codecs. You need an audio decoder filter (e.g. ffdshow, LAV Audio Dec) than can encode to spdif or hdmi.

    I have ffdshow, and it is set NOT to encode 5.1 streams, as i have a 5.1 amp... This works fine for wmv with 5.1 wma audio... Also i tried to have ffdshow encode, but it still just outputs trailers in stereo.

    I prefer not to reencode the audio, but if that is not possible, and someone have a solution that works involving reencoding audio, i am all ears ;)
