    I use "Media Portal - Audio Renderer" and it is working so far, BUT I always see on my Decoder Station (Teufel) the signal "Dolby Digital", no DTS or DD 5.1 is displayed.

    It seems it is working, but it is strange why I am always getting only the text "Dobly Digital"!?
    If I play on my PS4 a movie I see "DTS" or "DD 5.1" on my decoder station !
    Is this because of the Media Portal Audio Renderer?

    Attached I have added my sound settings.

    Good Morning,

    did you try and activate every box in "Bitstreaming" in "audio_settings3.png" ?

    How did you connect your Teufel?

    Yes.
    MPAR decodes the audio and then stretches, re-samples and/or re-encodes the audio as required. Decoding means that DTS will be converted to PCM; re-encoding means that the output will be Dolby.

    Hmm... If DTS will be converted to PCM --> means again "Dolby Digital" ?
    So I see always "Dolby Digital" instead of DTS or anything else? Or did I missunderstood this?

    I don't understand your question.
    Your configuration means this is what will happen:
    DTS === (decoded by LAV audio codec) ===> PCM ("raw digital audio") === (processed and encoded by MPAR) ===> Dolby Digital ===> AV receiver

    Yes, with your current configuration you will always see "Dolby Digital".

    It's just a different way of encoding audio, right. Shouldn't be a big deal.

    OK thanks for your answers.
    The audio formats are really complicated :)
