It sounds like they don't know what they're doing. It's tantamount to using optical. It may also be just passing the core audio.
That is what I meant the TV must be extracting the bits for Dolby out of the TrueHD and pushing that over ARC. Which would be the same as the 5.1 I already have.
But what I mean as well is that means with RokuTV our profile can include TrueHD as DirectPlay since it can be sent directly and decoded by the RokuTV to get to the 5.1 that is already supported. So it would mean the expense of transcode TrueHD->AC3 isn't dealt with by the Emby server when a RokuTV is in the mix. We just need a reliable way to tell which RokuTV models are surreptitiously supporting TrueHD. At first we just say ALL do and deal with the ones that have silence for TrueHD afterwards and fix it that way. Rather than allow TrueHD support to specific RokuTV. Allow for all and Disallow for certain models.
