Hi Everyone,

I have a question about different audio streams being broadcast on BBC HD on Freesat. So far this is the only channel I have seen this happen on. When I tune to the channel and there is a documentary or movie playing, the default soundtrack is always NAR, which has people narrating the action, I have to right-click goto audio options and then select ENG. If I swap channels and come back, it has swapped back to NAR.

I have looked everywhere in menus and setup for a default stream selection, is there any way to do this in a config file or option i have not seen?

:D

Yup, I have noticed this too. Would love to have a default audio stream function. I looks like mediaportal picks the first audio stream, which for BBC HD is the narrated stream.

    That's not correct. You can set a preference for the language and/or AC3 audio.
    It's in the mediaportal config tool -> Television -> Tv Client

    Gemex, thanks for that, I will give it a go at home :)

    this fix works. did my head in manually changing audio every time until I find it. I use BBCHD. Just set prefer AC3 audio as the man says.

    This is great, but for me the AC3 audio on BBC 1 HD is noticably quieter than all other channels. Is there a way of boosting the volume by default?

    Would have been cool, but no. For this, and a few other reasons, I moved on to Channels DVR. More or less the same idea though, as I'm using Channels as a backend for Plex with xTeVe as a virtual tuner. I've lost touch somewhat with what's going on with MePo, but Channels is being very actively developed (which is key, as there's a...

    Yes, it is, since a long time. I've used it for some years and still use it. Only the client plugin was not successfully ported to MP2. One glitch is still existing in the server plugin, you need to trigger the search manually. Normally it should run automatic but this did not work, at least not for me... Even without automatic...
