Re: AC3 Passthru on Handbrake works.

I converted an Xvid with AC3 5.1 Dolby Digital audio using Handbrake's AC3 Passthru audio option and it played fine on the Roku and sounded great. I am working on converting it directly from the Video_TS folder, although I can't see why this wouldn't work as well. Unfortunately, when encoding direc...

Re: 5.1 Audio

I had posted earlier that the AC3 passthru settings (handbrake) work to get 5.1 audio streaming to roku. Unfortunately, when encoding directly from .vob files (or dvd or iso image) the rebufferring problems are present. Weirdly enough, converting an xvid with AC3 passthru works fine. One more odd de...

5.1 Audio

5.1 Audio

I've been able to successfully convert and play a few short video files.

Has anyone had any success converting video to play with 5.1 (dolby digital) on the roku? I think Amazon does it, so it is possible . . .

cheers,

Sam

Should this be moved to or mirrored to the SDK forum?

5.1 Audio

So Amazon has certain titles with 5.1 channel audio. But the SDK documentation of compatible file formats are all stereo.

Has anyone experimented successfully or unsuccessfully with 5.1 encoded audio?

thanks

Will boxes with the b913 firmware be automatically upgraded to the
2.0 b2430 firmware? Or do we need to be taken off the b913 list first?

thanks
