I understand what you're saying, but I don't think you understand what I'm saying. Unless I down mix the audio, by using my headphones, all they get is a black screen, despite it saying direct played, subs or not.
My receiver support true HD audio, and can play it from other files, but has recently not started playing it from these files, stats for nerds says that it is direct playing both video audio and subtitles, but nothing is displaying on the screen
Alright, I'm home now. I've used my phone to take pictures of what I mean, in hopes it'll be understood better. As it seems the logs aren't helping.
Trying to play my x265 HEVC, TrueHD Media file I receiver this in Stats for nerds:
The screen remains black, however long I wait. Subs enabled.
Another x265, HEVC, TrueHD file - however a movie:
Plays flawlessly. Goes right to TrueHD on my receiver and plays with no issues at all. Same exact format...I even enabled PGS subtitles.
Now one of the media files I'm having issue with, same thing here:
I get a black screen unless I hit "Fix video issues", which then it transcode and redoes everything. Including burning in subtitles. If I disable subtitles, it DirectStreams HEVC as seen here:
But ...it should DirectPlay it. My receiver, as shown, supports TrueHD.
Here is where things get confusing, and is what I think you're not understanding.
if I use my Bluetooth headphones, connected using LDAC protocol, I get HEVC DirectStream video(WITH SUBTITLES), still AAC from the trueHD(Because they don't support TrueHD, being BT headphones and headphones in general). I get a Remux. But when NOT using my Bluetooth headphones, I get a Transcode.
Without using my BT Headphones, I get a black screen unless I hit the "Fix video issues" button. So I have to do it for every episode, or use my BT Headphones. I am trying to figure out WHY this is the case. Based on everything I've shown...the file should DirectPlay, or at the very least DirectStream - because it does that with my Bluetooth headphones...but not with my actual Receiver / Speaker. Sorry if I'm still not explaining this well.
And finally, here is the file...playing in Plex, Directly. So the Shield supports it.
The real question is why is it having issues with Emby?
