If I turn off bitsrim, the file is played normally. But other files AC-3 5.1 play as stereo. What does not suit me because they are the majority.P.S. Just checked that file with this AC3 stereo sound - my old Yamaha receiver is able to decode it properly when bitstreaming from HTPC. Have you expected it to have 5.1? Mediainfo clearly says
Format : AC-3
Channel(s) : 2 channels
Channel positions : Front: L R
Dont search more. The file is broken. Your system is not bad. Don't worry. You can re encode this one. Only for have it working on your HT. about audio quality loss. The ac3 you have is already compressed. Because 192 kb on ac3. Is not standard. At least i think.Maybe, but I do not believe it. The previous season was with the same format, it plays fine. Look for a test file with AC3 2.0 44,100 check.
why do you think so? it plays well on my system, and i don't see anything bad/wrong in it.The file is broken
acc.to Standard http://atsc.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/A52-201212-17.pdf page 117 192kBps is an allowed value.The ac3 you have is already compressed. Because 192 kb on ac3. Is not standard. At least i think.
