silly surround sound audio question

Postby t0mmyr » Wed Sep 04, 2013 6:34 am

is there a way to make pms automatically downscale a DTS-HD.MA.7.1.x264 mix to DTS 5.1? my receiver is connected via optical to my ps3 and is only 5.1, would it reprocess my audio correctly or does pms do it or should i not worry. i've never watched a 7.1 video on my surround sound but will be trying it this weekend with something i just got.

Try a test clip to find out. The optical is fed by the PS3 which I'm pretty sure does the downmixing properly. There are some settings in the System > Audio menu, try those if you get missing channels. Some of that bitsream/LPCM stuff.

edit: oops, those were Megaupload links and mega is dead now. Sorry :/

I would be surprised if your receiver didnt figure it out for you mate, besides as I understand it the extra two channels are rear channels as opposed to the usual surround speakers which is usually what most 5.1 users put just behind them so you probably would be ok even without the 2 extra channels.

Gonna have to suck it and see mate I think

LPCM is the best way to get the Looses audio, your reciever won't show the little dolby digital. why don't you use HDMI? it's so much better.
