Blu ray manufacturers appear to be removing support for HD audio over DLNA. I had older Sony players that would pass both through to my AVR. But my current one only passes one of them (can't remember if it's DTS or Dolby). When I contacted Sony, I couldn't get a straight answer, but have found in other forums that it is happening with other brands as well. I also bought the K8500 4K player, and returned it because it didn't pass HD audio from DLNA sources.
Nothing can be done from the Serviio side of things.
Thank u for the answer!!!
And a popcorn VTEN will do the job?:) (4k playback and high def audio?)
I'm not familiar with the Popcorn line, so can't say for sure. But one post I found says it does DTS-MA but not TrueHD. Well, I just went to the official site and it does show TrueHD, so that old post isn't accurate any longer. But it also says out of stock
. Looks like Popcorn has some other players, but they too get pricey.
The only box I know 100% for sure is the Nvidia Shield, which also supports almost every video and audio codec. But it's $200-300. There are many, many Android boxes that support Kodi, which can be configured to pass HD audio. Kodi can also play from Serviio, but I don't find it particularly convenient to use. Maybe I didn't spend enough time with it. The downside of these Android boxes is that while they all have Netflix, none officially support Amazon Instant Video. I understand that you can sideload the Amazon app, but you can't get 4K playback. The only Android box that officially support Amazon is the Nvidia Shield.
