#11028 closed Bug Report - General (Won't Fix)

Audio output remains Dolby Digital when channels shift from 5.1ch to 2ch

Reported by: rparrish@… Owned by: JYA
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - Audio Output Version: 0.25-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords: ac-3 stereo 5.1
Cc: Ticket locked: no


Mythfrontend is configured with speaker count set to 5.1, AC-3 passthrough enabled, and upmixing disabled.

When watching a recording which begins with DD Stereo audio, output is PCM Stereo as expected. If the audio track changes to DD5.1, output changes to DD5.1 -- also as expected. But when the audio track changes back to DD Stereo, the output switches to DD Stereo instead of PCM Stereo. I have verified this behavior using the indicators on my audio/video receiver.

I have hosted a test clip which can be used to demonstrate this behavior at this link: (Link points to file on my Microsoft Sky Drive account)

I am using Mythbuntu's 0.25-fixes repo on Ubuntu Lucid.

Works as intended.

You don't want to change mid-ways unless absolutely necessary otherwise you get a pause in the audio which can take several seconds depending on the amplifier and how long it takes for them to sync.

Audio will be decoded from DD only if absolutely required, like you activate timestretch
