Trying the beta....same issues.
However, think i figured out my issue.
I have transcoding disabled for this user. As i only want it to direct play and not stress out the server cpu. Transcode should not be needed at all.
The setting "Allow audio playback that requires transcoding" in the servers CP, with that disabled, these audio issue occur, enable it, it does not.
I notice the source audio, no matter the codec, is always showed as AAC Stereo when i enable this and playback mode is Remux instead of Direct.
Also setting the Roku system Audio settings to Stereo, also is infact locking the whole device to only use AAC Stereo globally.
I can use the Roku remote headphone jack fine with other apps, even when system is set to Auto(Dobly Digital) or even manuly selecting D.D or D.D PLus.
So i know the Roku supports AC3 etc. as it works every where else.
But for some reason, the same AC3 direct stream multi channel audio track is not being sent to, or decoded by the Roku remote.
Far as I can tell, not being able to use the remote headphone jack, is the only issue of disabling any transcoding in Emby.
Could you provide a detailed insight (or link to one) on what the Emby sever stream modes are and how they work, direct, Remux, transcode, HLS etc, when it comes to the adio and video track separately?
A bit off topic, but, how mature/stable/ well optimized is the Emby experience on a Roku, as compared to the the other stream boxes out there, FireStick, Shield, Apple TV, etc?Go to the full post
