It was a new recording today. Anericas got talent. On the new box.
while playing that new recording press the "OK" button. upper left do you see word DVR with a fluffy white cloud icon in front?
I will check tonight thanks. So cloud DVR recordings wont be in 5.1 dolby, but live tv will?
yes if source is encoded at 5.1.
no all my DVR recordings. old or new won't play in 5.1. Only on demand or live tv. Which stinks I only watch DVR.
5.1 requires encrypted connection to an audio receiver (or some soundbars). If the connection is not secure the 5.1 won't activate. do you get a notice on your receiver the source is 5.1? are you using anything other than HDMI connection for the audio path?
Today one show recorded. I watched it and dolby 5.1 worked. But I exit and came back and if went back to 2.1 what the heck.
you may need a local expert to help you fix the issue. If possible, connect STB to the TV and use the ARC HDMI connector to deliver the sound streams back to the receiver.
