Does it do DTS at all?
Complete list of supported Audio formats..
I found this too. I stopped using it and just use the TVs one now.
If you use Infuse pro you can get DTS.
I use Plex and don't want to change.
It’s a fantastic Plex client, way better than their native tvOS client in my view. Everything direcstreams and is silky smooth.
Aye, but so is my NVidia Shield which also does DTS/MA etc.
The latest update to the All4 app (8.1) released today adds integration for the TV app across iOS and tvOS.
Thinking about getting the 4k tv box (32gb), I use my TV internal apps currently, but I only get DD 5.1 over optical and I have an issue with sound dropouts on the TV netflix app.
Just a few questions
Can I get DTSHD, DDTHD, DD+ with this box if I connect into my soundbar (ysp2700)
Also does anyone use this box with a series 6 LG OLED, I have a B6 just wondered what best settings to use as I know DV is limited to 30hz on the series 6 LGs.
You cannot get HD audio the best is DD 5.1 or Dolby Atmos.
I use mine with my B6 and have no issues. DV works great although I have no idea what I have it set to something like auto switch to source material or something. Will check when I next use it....
I don’t get any sound drop outs on my B6 using internal apps and ARC to my ysp2700 ?
Thanks, what about DD+
Anyway no big deal on the sound formats, as for the sound dropouts on the internal netflix app, it is rare and I've never been able to fix it unless I used stereo sound, but having the apple box I won't need to worry.
It does these...
What firmware are you using on your B6 OLED, I notice some raised blacks on Dolby vision content on the APTV 4K with fade to black screens. On internal app its fine.
I am on older firmware though (4.31.25).
I’m using the latest version which is 05.30.55
Not had any issues. Any reason you have not updated ?
The B6 suffers from raised blacks with the newer firmwares, hard to see unless you really test for it but it is there and you need to be in a complete pitch dark environment to spot it, noticeable more so in HDR content. Its a separate issue from the Dolby vision raised blacks that effected all LG OLEDS.
How is your aptv connected straight to TV or via receiver?
Not noticed anything myself and watch a lot with HDR and Dolby Vision never in a completely dark room though. I’m not going to look for it.... lol
It’s connected directly to the TV and use ARC for audio...
Thats good then, as you don't want to look for it and if you don't watch in a pitch dark room you will never see it anyway.
If you don't mind what video settings do you use on the APTV 4K?
I have the menu set to 4K SDR, RGB High and match content set to Range & Frame rate. Audio is set to Auto
How come you don’t use HDR 60Hz?
No point in the menus really. It outputs whatever the movie is encoded in to the tv when played.
Separate names with a comma.
