Dolby Digital and DTS only working via "Direct Play" Intel NUC
Hi folks, Ive done loads of searching and I cant seem to find this specific problem. My brother has been accessing my server for a while and he has been getting dolby/dts on his setup while streaming at 4mbs. All of a sudden it no longer works, Ive been on his pc via team viewer this morning and the only way I can get it to work is to set playback to Direct. The only issue with this is a lot of my movies are unplayable even though he has a super fast virgin connection, thats another issue for another time.
I set him up with OpenPHT as it was the only player that gave passthrough. His NUC is an i5 running Win10, Im guessing none of that is relevant as he gets dolby and dts via Direct Play. I did read something about xml files, Ive seached my 'C' drive for them and found hundreds but I really dont know what im looking for, ive seen posts telling people to add DCA for DTS support. From my server I can see it is transcoding all my multichannel formats to AAC, sometimes to opus? If it matters he has the NUC connected via HDMI to a Sony Receiver. Any help is greatly appreciated.
