Re: DTS-MA passthrough

Well it looks like hd audio can now be decoded to pcm for truehd and dts-ma so the pi can now do HD audio

Re: DTS-MA passthrough

So will this still mean that we need a DTS capable TV or receiver to hardware decode DTS? Will the Rasberry Pi be able to hardware decode this? I believe a lot of people just use their Pi via a TV that doesn't have DTS. If necessary, maybe a wiki page should be created with alternatives(preferably ...

Re: OpenELEC vs Raspbmc?

I think something is wrong if it takes minutes to start a film. My pi running raspbmc takes maybe 5 seconds to start a film in fact I can stream films over the internet and it starts to play in under 15 seconds

Re: DTS License

As stated above DTS can be a pain to work with, take a look at the WDTV forums and the ongoing problems with it not doing DTS-MA pass through. This isnt even decoding, but just to pass the audio through and DTS wont allow any device without a physical drive to have a liecence and so the WDTV will ne...

Re: XBMC, Do you guys ever turn off your Pi?

With raspbmc USB install is easy you just use the windows installer and tick the box for USB install. The put the SD card and USB stick in the pi and turn it on USB install is done automatic.

I use a ir plug that turns the pi on when I want to use it and off when I'm finished

Im affraid that the DTS liecence may well be very difficult to obtain. Those who have a WD TV will know the problems they have with DTS liecencing, and its been going on for years!!

I've managed to playback the m2ts file now by setting the NFS mount with resize and wsize set to 32768 had to play around with the values but this works now.

I'm still seeing heavy CPU usage on the file though

Re: h.264 vs. vc-1 performance

Yeah I'm definitely passing the audio to my receiver! I've taken the file and remuxed it to Mkv and also I have also copied the m2ts file but down mixed the audio from dts-ma to dts to see if the removal of hd audio effects the CPU.

I then checked on the cable to the pi and I got 81Mbps write and 69Mbps write. So its slower but the pi is further away than the wdtv. Now even with the lower ...
