Not sure if this is app related or maybe a TV setting, but I've recently been trying out the Android for TV app on my Sony Bravia 4K TV. I've always been an Emby Theater person, but just seeing how the app works within the Smart Content.
Anyway, I can play the content and get sound just fine passed to my Home Theater Receiver, but it shows that it is only getting PCM audio, despite me playing content that has TrueHD 7.1 Atmos, etc. Whenever I watch straight up TV over the air digital channels, the receiver shows whatever audio is being broadcast, usually Dolby Digital.
when I play the same media via emby theater, I get my receiver to play it in the appropriate audio signal.
Is this a design of the app,or should it be passing the audio through and I need to make more TV and/or receiver adjustments? I've scoured both systems setup menus and can't find anything particular to this, because the TV channels pass their audio signals just fine. I know I had to select which audio signals to let ET pass through but didn't find any similar setting in the Android app.
Thanks in advance.
