    Hello,

    I would like to report one issue I found out during my 2 weeks testing with audio.

    1. Dolby Home Theater V4 (analogue output):
    In case of Dolby Home Theater V4 (analogue output) & Surround virtualizer is set ON, the upmix from 2+0 to 5+1 (my case) does not work in Media Portal if the Audio Render is set up to Media Portal Audio Render (it does not depend on codecs AFAIK - in my case all audio and video codecs are LAV).

    Surround virtualizer in Dolby Home Theater V4 (analogue output) set up ON works fine with Default Direct Sound device audio renderer.

    2. Dolby Advanced Audio V2 (analogue output):
    In case of Dolby Advanced Audio V2 (analogue output) & Surround virtualizer is set ON, the upmix from 2+0 to 5+1 (my case) does not work in Media Portal if the Audio Render is set up to Media Portal Audio Render (it does not depend on codecs AFAIK - in my case all audio and video codecs are LAV).

    Surround virtualizer in Advanced Audio V2 (analogue output) set up ON works fine with Default Direct Sound device audio renderer.


    My settings:

    Dolby Home Theater V4 control panel:

    MPAR uses WASAPI (exclusive) / direct device, which means that no other software is able to touch the audio stream. So it's by design that Dolby Home Theater V4 won't work with MPAR.
