1) Yes
2) MP will use the dobly digital audio if autotune finds its PID correctly. Really it will just work.

that means when MP finds a dolby pid then it use it automaticly?
and when you press then record it will record with this dolby stream?

    I don't know about automatic but you will have the ability to switch streams soon.
    Yes it will record the AC3 stream.
    The next release will record the transport stream so if two audio streams are part of the broadcast then both will be recorded.

    Hi there

    Has this been implemented yet? How do I switch between audio streams?

    Thanks

    I just figured that in configuration.exe one has to go to Television, then TV Channels, select a channel and then press Edit. In the DVB-T tab there's given on the right side the PIDs for the various audio streams. I copied the AC3 pid to the left side into the Audio pid field.

    Since right now there's no programs in AC3 being transmitted I cannot check it, but I will do so when there's something on in Dolby Digital. At least nothing is broken ;-)

    Works perfectly for me in RC2 without having to configure anything manually. We have two DVB-T channels that broadcast with AC3 audio all the time (even if it most of the time only contains only stereo) here in Sweden.

    DMan - you wrote:

    What is the "next release"? Are you referring to 0.2.0 final or a later release?

    How do you actually know that it is AC3 they transmit? Do they transmit DD2.0? My amplifier - Sony STR-DB780 - says "PCM 48" all the time, I wonder if that will change then to DD 3/2 when they show movies at prime time....

    They do transmit 2 channel DD over here yes. We either get MPEG stereo sound or 2 channel AC3. My speaker system reads "Stereo" in the faceplate when playing back the 2 channel AC3 (different to PCM Stereo when its the MPEG audio).

    For me it is not momentary i.e.when I press play/pause or stop the red dot appears and stays there and presumably has scheduled a recording, pressing either button again turns the red dot off and cancels the recording. I did not try with the number buttons, I am running MP 1.29.

    Probably there is a conflict with other LAV versions. You may uninstall MP2 once and afterwards remove (backup) all settings in “/Program Data/Team MediaPortal/“. E.g. moving them to desktop. Then try reinstalling MP2.
