short version: Roku app seems to be picking TrueHD track before standard DD track on basic 2.0 TV speaker setup. It direct plays if I manually change it-- should it be auto selecting it on play?
Hey, replaced my aging Yamaha soundbase (5.1 optical) with a Vizio Atmos bar that can decode TrueHD & DTS-HD. Previously all of my rips were basic DD or DTS for straight forward compatibility with the Yamaha which worked fine for my Shield/Yamaha and also with a secondary TV that's a Roku on basic TV speakers. Also my remote users are all Roku's a couple with basic 2.0 TV speaker setups.
I decided to start re-rip my discs to include the TrueHD and DTS-HD tracks but also with secondary DD or DTS core tracks if available to avoid remux on these other clients. Before I blow out all my rips I decided to check that things were working on my secondary TV. I've got a rip of Brave with the TrueHD track and also a 640Kbps DD track-- it started with the TrueHD track instead of the DD track. If I change it to the DD track using the OSD then it goes to direct play instead of remuxing. Also for both it seems if I stop/resume it goes out of sync. If I stop/resume again it's back in sync again, this is even with direct play track.
I can get logs but wanted to start with the basic question, should it auto select the most compatible track? iirc it should query the Roku for compatibility, this Roku is set for just DD audio (also it's a Streaming Stick+)
ps. please don't bust me for not posting logs, I'll get them in a bit I promise
