New profile required for 2018 Samsung NU TV's

As is fairly well known, the new Samsung N Series TV's dont support DTS audio.

This is annoying.

It's causing me some issues with Serviio as I have a lot of media in a variety of formats, much of which has various audio tracks.
The trouble im having is where a playable video, has an audio track the TV can't handle, Ill either get a film with no audio, or a foreign lower quality sound track.

So as I see it, Serviio doesnt understand that the TV has limitations, so doesnt start transcoding.

Can we have a new N Series profile that takes this into account so will start transcoding if either the video or audio arent supported?

Thanks

While you're waiting, I suggest trying the Roku 4K TV profile. It will transcode DTS audio but leave the video as native, so it doesn't take much server power. I'm assuming your Samsung is 4K. If not, then try the standard Roku TV profile.
