SuissoNaBisso posted a topic in LG Smart TVHi So I have a remote server connected with gigabit connection, at home I'm using the Emby app on LG 65C9 TV running WebOS 4.5. Use the server with UHD movies mainly containing HD audio like DTH-HD MA, Dolby True HD or event Dolby True HD Atmos. The problem is that on this Emby player app, in the settings, the maximum quality we can set for audio (with internet stream) is 2Mbps and for certain audio tracks this is not enough hence the server is forced to transcode / downgrade the audio to AC3 format with such a low bitrate... Example yesterday I did several tests with various movies and different audio bitrate : Quantum of Solace with DTS-HD MA track with bitrate of 1536 kbps = no trasncoding at all, stats for nerds well show that the DTS HD signal is decoded and sent to the TV Skyfall with DTS-HD MA track with bitrate of 1536 kbps = no trasncoding at all, stats for nerds well show that the DTS HD signal is decoded and sent to the TV Fantastics Beast, Crimes of Grindelwald with True HD ATmos track with bitarte of 3457 kbps = audio is being transcoded and dowgraded to AC3 format at around 500 kbps... Is there anyway to break this max setting for audio of 2 mbps ? My TV is compatible with HD formats including Atmos but I can't enjoy these tracks due to this limitation of Emby app...any update to fix in the future ? if Audio max settings offered was 4 or 5 Mbps that would make it ! Thanks
So I have a Denon receiver which has a great wireless DLNA feature but it seems to be limited to 96 kHz frequency with 24 bit files (or at least for ALAC files which I prefer because they go in iTunes then). Is there any way to set DLNA on emby to downrez these files on the fly to 96 so I can stream to my Denon? The 96 khz ones I have work great, but the 192 khz ones give "file format error" Thanks! Ron
Hi folks, Thanks for helping with my sudden surge of questions over the last week. I'm awakening as if from a long sleep. This one takes some explanation: In spring of 2009, I cut the cord and built an HTPC. It connected to an old-school AVR via optical (TosLink) cable, with a separate HDMI cable direct to the TV for the video connection. Sure, in the time since then I've updated the video card, added an SSD for the OS, and upgraded the storage drives. Along the way I quickly ditched Vista and have been on Win 7 ever since. Media Browser 2.3 eventually evolved into Emby as we know and love it today. My content source all this time has largely been BluRays that I rip with MakeMKV. But my audio connection for lo these past 7 years has been just an optical cable. DD 5.1 and DTS. My AVR didn't support anything higher, and back in 2009 when I set everything up, "bitstreaming audio" was as much magic as science, reserved for those lofty folks who had extra time after fighting off dinosaurs and such. I never thought much of it. My HTPC went from "way of life" to "hobby" to "appliance" and needed very little attention. But I've finally invested in a late model HD-Audio-capable AVR (Denon s720W) thanks to recommendations from the forum, and I even have a new dedicated Windows 10 box (Tronsmart X5 Ara plus) on the way. To get HD Audio in this modern age with such updated equipment, do I need to do anything different than I have been doing, other than making sure to select the HD audio stream when ripping with MakeMKV? My client will likely be the standard Emby Theater application in Win 10. So, with the Win 10 box connected via HDMI to the new AVR, do I need to set anything up special to get HD Audio to work streaming with Emby server (on my old Win 7 computer) to the new TV-proximal Win 10 box with Theater? OR, does it "just work" [usually]. I remember people fussing so much, special drivers, all kinds of audio angst years ago. Is it really just plug and play now? The funny part is that I'm not sure my ears are capable of hearing the difference! :-)
I have yet to install MB3 because I am not really clear about Multi-Channel HD audio support. Does MB3 support any HD audio formats such as DTS-MA or TrueHD "out of the box"? If not, What is the "best" way to achieve this? (and by "best" I mean easiest) Would I have to install an external player? or ffdshow? or both?
