    Hi there,
    i've got a problem with the playback of some movies. The sound format is listed as DTS HD 7.1 but the receiver detects it as DTS surround 5.0 input signal (made some screenshots). The sound is not completely missing. It is very silent and kind of stuttering. Playing the same movie with VLC and SPDIF the playback is normal and the receiver detects the stream as DTS surround with 7.1 layout. I think theres a problem with the correct media detection in MP.

    I am using Mediaportal 1.20 with LAV filters (of course) and tried several audio settings.

    The MP config uses LAV for all codecs, the audio rendering is set to Direct Sound Maranz AVR. DRRC is disabled.

    I am using the VMR9 video renderer instead of EVR because i had some stability issues with EVR but tried also with EVR.

    The AVR is a Maranz SR 5012 connectied via HDMI to my htpc.

    The htpc is an AMD 7700k APU on a Gigabyte GA-F2A88XM-HD3 board. The current AMD drivers with version 18.8.1 are quite actual.

    I will watch with VLC now but would appreciate a solution for MP.

    KODI has obviously similar playback problems i think. The audio input signal is detected as PCM multi channel but with correct channel layout with these movies.

    Try updating LAV to latest release, 0.72.0 is I believe the current released version. There was a problem that could be what you are experiencing in earlier versions, see here for more.
    Man thanks for the response. I searched before posting this issue and was sure i am the first. Mostly this is a misbelief. I updated to 0.72 and what should i say. It is fixed. I wonder why the MPE installer did not show the update.
