Got Emby installed The UI seems a bit snappier and quicker now when navigating around.
I set the Now TV box to 1080p display in its settings.
It doesn't seem to play 1080p MKVs that well even on the LAN cable?
Just tried to play "300" which has DTS audio and it was playing a bit and then stopping then playing a bit.
Then tried "Aliens" that took a good while to start playback, says "retrieving", it played for a minute or so and then says Loading, please wait. This title has DTS audio as well.
Looking on the Emby server I can see its transcoding so is probably hammering the CPU on my little HP Microserver.
I then tried "The Lord of the Rings" which is 1080p with AC3 (Dolby) audio and that played longer for about 5 minutes until it then also said Loading, please wait.
Maybe its just down to my HP Microserver not having the CPU power to transcode on the fly for 1080p.
Also anyone know can these Now TV boxes do audio pass-through to an AVR ?
