Nvidia Shield with 7.1, atmos and other HD Audio formats?
I bought a Samsung KS8000. Along with a Yamaha atmos receiver. I was really shocked to find that I couldn't play atmos files through PLEX, or worse...even 7.1 files. I didn't realise the limitation of the optical cable. Combine this with the Samsung DTS issue, and I've started to look at other options. Which brought me to the Shield.
I have searched the NVIDIA Shield section of these forums but only get conflicting information. I would hope just to get a simple answer...
Q: Using my local home network (with my PC acting as a server), can the NVIDIA Shield TV play atmos, 7.1 and more via plex - when directly connected to my AV Receiver (which supports all those formats) via a HDMI cable? Are there currently any bugs or issues to know about.
