Synology DS214play transcoding

I just discovered Serviio, and everything works good with one exception.

When i stream video with DTS by DLNA to my Samsung TV, i receive the audio as DTS even when i'm have activated walmart one "Downmix to stereo"

Is the transcoding supposed to work with DLNA or only when using the build in "media-browser" from a browser?

Re: Synology DS214play transcoding

Your TV is probably converting it to DTS. Check the audio menu and you'll find the settings. I have two Samsung sets and both will annoy me by altering the audio being sent. I solved the problem by not using the TV audio at all, and play my media with external players that feed a Yamaha AVR. I don't use the TV speakers at all. The TV sends audio from broadcast channels back to the Yamaha with ARC, and since those are always AC3 the TV doesn't swap the audio settings by itself.
