    Hello everyone,

    I need some help getting DTS files to play. Currently I have video files that have DTS audio or DTS-HD. My HTPC connects vis HDMI to a Yamaha RX-V675 7.2 Channel Network AV Receiver with 5.1 speakers and then on to a TV via HDMI. The attached image shows the properties of the receiver despite the fact that it lists the TV as the device. Within LAV mt DTS files will play audio if the DTS and DTS-HD are UNCHECKED. If they are checked then no audio from these file types. If the "Use DTS-HD Framing for all DTS Types" is checked then my receiver will flash on it's displap PCM then DTS in an irregular pattern. The output bit format does not make a difference. The convert to Standard channel layout does not make a difference. My audio render is set to M420NV-4 within the codex area.

    If the DTS is unchecked then my DTS files will play. All other type of files (ACC, MP3, AC3,etc.) All play.

    My DTS files will play through VLC however the receiver does not display DTS just PCM.

    I am wondering if my receiver may not decode DTS files? Also included logs just incase.

    Thanks

    :-(

    No one has any ideas for how to trouble shoot this? Should I have posted somewhere else?

    Hello

    It's possible.

    This doesn't seem to be a MediaPortal problem. I mean, yes you're playing the files/discs through MediaPortal... however MediaPortal isn't responsible for actually decoding the audio. That's left to the splitter and audio codec that you choose.

    ...so yes, in my opinion this isn't exactly the ideal place to have posted your questions. Personally I would have chosen somewhere else like AVS Forums, and I would have been checking other software and connections too if possible.

    Sorry, I can only read the specifications. According to the specifications, your receiver seems to support DTS HD decoding. There's no mention of standard DTS support:
    http://usa.yamaha.com/products/audio-visual/av-receivers-amps/rx/rx-v675_u/

    I might have assumed that DTS is supported anyway, but I really have no idea.

    Have you set the receiver to auto-detect the input format?
    If so, this would indicate that the receiver doesn't understand DTS, because it needs LAV to decode it (ie. options unchecked).

    Because VLC decodes them, but not encodes in any 5.1 format, so - only PCM Stereo is transfering over HDMI.

    and please - install MediaInfo package and post here the output of it for the file you are trying to play

    BTW why have you disabled 32bit and 32bit float for output formats in LAV audio?
