    Hi All,

    I've tried to do a search to see if I can find an answer on why I have this little issue when it comes to audio in some files.

    The trouble is the audio is encoded as 2 channel stereo AC3. It's sent to my home amp as AC3 via SPDIF as it thinks it's dolby digital. Alas, when it gets there nothing can be heard.

    If I change LAV filters and uncheck Dolby Digital AC3 passhtru off then the audio is back. I'd rather not have to do this as it's a pain. Do I have a setting wrong or should I try and recode the audio into MP3 stereo and remux?

    If the audio is just sent to my normal speakers everything is ok. I have MP 1.8.0 and LAV 0.62.0 installed. It's such a PITA.

    Any help would be really nice and appreciated.
