MKV with DTS - How to stop audio transcode?

Postby morpheleon » Mon Oct 29, 2012 12:58 am

For some reason I am unable to get my MKV files to pass through the DTS signal unmolested. I have some WAV files that are DTS encoded and those are working well.

The MKV's when I play them are coming through to the PS3 as Dolby Digital instead of their native DTS streams. So I think it's doing a forced AC3 re-encode, but I can't figure out how to stop that. I have the check mark for "Keep DTS Track", but that seems to be ignored or something. I'm using PMS 1.7.0 on Ubuntu Linux.

There is another settings on renderer level so check your renderer.conf file for:
Code: Select all

PS3 should have "WrapDTSIntoPCM=true" to obey firmware limitation (due to missing DTS license)
Another renderers should use "MuxDTSToMpeg" if they support DTS.
WrapDTSToMpeg is hack to fool PS3 so DTS is played. It is wraped to LPCM2.0 which PS3 automatically pass to receiver which play it (it receiver has DTS support)
