I am having trouble playing a 4K video with TrueHD or Atmos audio. While playing the video I can switch to Dolby Digital 5.1 and it plays fine when I switch the audio track to TrueHD the video still plays but no audio. I have my Xbox One X plugged into my Onkyo receiver directly into an HDMI 2.2 input. Anyone have any insight into this. Thanks.

Luke, please see attached Log files from the two videos that I tried playing. I have skimmed them and didn't see anything that stands out.

 

To verify I have my Xbox One X hooked directly into my Onkyo NR656 receiver in the 2.2 slot. Unless there is a setting in the Xbox that I am unaware of (went through the audio settings) my receiver should automatically decode the signal correct? Thanks in advance.

Ok so first things first, the app cannot pass TrueHD to your receiver. Yes the Xbox One supports that, but right now Microsoft is not making that feature available to third party apps @@FrostByte.

 

So that means we have to use the server to convert the audio on the fly, and it looks like on your machine this is happening so slowly that it's not even going to be playable.

 

What kind of machine is your server installed on?

I am running with a run of the mill home PC.

 

It has a i3-4170 @ 3.70GHz

8GB RAM

64bit

Windows 10

 

I run Plex off of it fine with 3-4 transcodes. When I start up the Emby server it seems to bog down quite a bit. The reason I am trying to switch to Emby is I can direct play these movies on the Plex app on my Samsung TV with 7.1 audio. The problem I have is the App is on the tv and using the ARC that goes from the TV to my receiver wont send the TrueHD or Atmos signal because its not an eARC or something like that. So basically Emby was a shot at getting something that would direct play on my Xbox and passthrough the audio. My next step may be a Nvidia Shield.

Sorry, I took another look at your logs. The reason for the slow performance is that we're converting the video, but on Xbox One X supports hevc so it should be direct playing. Are you sure these logs are from Xbox One X playback? Do you have the corresponding emby server log? thanks.

So I'm at work and was remoting in to pull those last ones. When I went to the &appdata% folder, and then to the Emby folder I did not see a logs folder. Will take a look now.

Disregard. Found the logs. Getting them now. I'll just pull all of them. I did have to change some server settings to get the video to direct play, can't remember what I did to do it but I found the solution here.

I am having the same problem with trueHD and AAC 7.1. It is direct playing audio and video and not transcoding the audio on my Xbox one S.

Hi, there's no way that it should be direct playing truehd. Please attach the information requested in how to report a media playback issue. thanks.
