No 5.1 audio on ChromeCast Ultra
I have been having 5.1 sound issues since I first started using Plex, and I have tried almost everything.
So I hope someone can shed light on this for me.
- MyCloud PR2100 serving as a Plex server with all my content.
- Android app where I access content.
- ChromeCast Ultra hooked to TV via HDMI.
- TV is 5 year old Panasonic.
- TV is connected to DVD/5.1 sound system via "headphone audio out" which is 2 channel sound (as I understand)
- Sound system is Samsung HT-J5500/XE.
The setup can be seen here:
All my movies are played in 2.0 sound using only the front speakers of my sound system.
I have tried movies with different audio "tracks", but nothing works.
I have used a tool called MediaInfo to check my movies.
A specific movie, that I think MUST be able to play 5.1 is this one:
It specificly says that the audio stream is 6 channels AC-3 which I suppose should work with 5.1?
And another think I have been wondering about:
Tells me to go to "Settings -> Audio" where I can config many things about sound.
But I have never seen all these settings, neither on my MyCloud PR2100 (plex server) or the Android App.
Does the link contain outdated information, or where should I see these settings?
On my Andorid App i go to "Settings -> Advanced -> Player (not sure about this name)"
Where I can see "Device support".
Audio passthrough is set to "deactivated" and I can't get it to change to "automatic" every time I click "automatic" and leave settings and return it is defaulted to "deactivated" again.
And "Optional audio support" is only set to AC3 (which matches my movie info)...
Long story short, I have no idea where to go from here, and I can't figure out where the problem lies.
Can anyone help me out?
