First of all, not sure if this is a FireTV thing or a server thing, but anyway...

 

On beta server 3.3.1.18 and FTV 1.5.70a.

 

It appears that You Only Live Twice is transcoding. So am wondering - is it actually transcoding as there's only one green line in the server dashboard, not the usual (I think ?) twin green/orange lines. Also, what happened to the other options in the dashboard, shouldn't there be 4 not one, a Stop button and a few others...

Also, now that I've remembered to look in the logs directory, it appears to be remuxing, should it do that or just direct play, based on the info below...

Am pretty sure this was direct playing a day or two ago...

Hi.  Bring up the "Stats for nerds" in the app.  What does it tell you?

 

Pretty sure it will tell you it is converting the DTS to DD.  This isn't anything new.  Fire doesn't support DTS.

It says its remuxing, which I presume is the DTS to DD bit.

 

Also, those buttons still come and go. Seems like it (usually) starts with the 4 buttons then drops down to one or two.

Should this non-DTS movie also be transcoding according to the server...

...actually just looked on the Fire TV and it started off remuxing but apparently switched to direct playing, but the server still says its transcoding. Confused.

The Fire TV also doesn't support DD over 384kb/s so, yes, it should be remuxing the audio bitrate down.

Ta. Any thoughts on a device that would direct play this stuff ? would have to be cheap if I do get anything though (as it only remuxing and wouldn't get a Shield past SWMBO...)

Remuxing to convert the audio is very cheap.

 

Are you actually encountering a problem with that?

Not really, more of a pet peeve.

 

Though am still getting server saying its transcoding even though FTV says its direct playing and the variable number of buttons on the dashboard entry, its got 3 at the moment.

 

Oops, its gone back to one again, the send message one.
