5.1 audio mkv,but don't have 5.1 setup

Chris_RobbinsChris_Robbins Posts: 126Members ✭✭

i have a bunch of 1080p MKV with 5.1 audio,but I dont have a 5.1 setup. I have a Vizo soundbar. Can I set the roku to play AAC stereo or will it just play the original 5.1?? would like to make it globally if possible

    Yes...go to the main settings out in the Roku's menu. "settings", "audio", and then set both the sections to stereo. Plex will respect those settings, and request that the server transcode any 5.1 tracks to stereo AAC.
