    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.

    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

    So I see always "Dolby Digital" instead of DTS or anything else?
    Yes, with your current configuration you will always see "Dolby Digital".

    i am also not sure what is the difference between Indication of "Dolby digital" and "DD 5.1" on your system?

    Hello, for many years I used a Digital Devices CineS2 on a unicable system with Mediaportal. Recently I upgraded with an additional Digital Devices Max M4, which is a multituner card. From the CineS2 I was used that the satellite signal strength is always 100%. Even if the signal is so weak that I have dropouts (due to bad weather)...

    Hello!!! I use a handy app called catchin' sync to roughly check the AV sync of audio/video on my HTPC/TV. It's not as accurate as a dedicated opto-electronic calibrator but it's more than adequate for this application and much better than trying to do things by eye (even when the lack of sync is massively obvious, subjective...

    OK, this is specifically for people in Belgium (Vlaanderen) who are using Telenet Cable with MediaPortal 2. Next year (Edit: this year, in march 2020) the Telenet provider will stop broadcasting Analog TV and Radio signals on their cable, and make the switch to Digital (DVB-C). The radio signals will disappear completely, so you'll...
