Hi all

I have a USB sound card with SPDIF out into a Denon AVR-1909.

I have the LAV filters set to bitstream all codecs.

I have no issues with DTS, AAC, AC3 but when playing things with Dolby Digital plus (e-ac3) they do not bit stream via SPDIF
Oddly DTS-HD appears to work, but I do wonder if its downmixing that already (despite being ticked under bitstreaming)

I know this is a limitation of optical SPDIF and that I need to use the HDMI input on the Denon. Is there a way to downmix to dolby digital over SPDIF until the new graphics card arrives?

Thanks all

    LAV Audio decoder can downmix multi-channel audio to Dolby Pro Logic II (see the 'Mixing' tab, as below) which is probably the easiest thing to do if this is a temporary situation. You might not need the 'Enable Mixing' box ticked - I can't remember if this is necessary.

    Thanks, I thought so too, but down-mixing to Pro logic 2 still gives no sound in these files with e-ac3, not quite sure why.

    hm, don't know exactly, but perhaps (vaguely remember seeing someting alike on youtube) the plugin selects the stream where audio and video are in separate streams, and Mediaportal cannot handle that. Unfortunately this site is geoblocked, so it's going to be a real pain to check/fix this...
