DTS-HD MA passthrough doesn't work most of the time


I noticed that when passthrough audio is enabled, videos with a DTS-HD MA track either give a static sound or no sound at all. On very rare times they do work. I’m using a Marantz NR1501 receiver.

Here are the logs:

I played the file 6 times, only the 6th gave sound.
Thank you for your help.

EDIT: I’d like to precise that DTS-HD HRA and Dolby TrueHD work without problems.

Does this occur in v17?


Do you have a sample of this file you can give us so we can test it here?



Here is a sample: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Byk_1E5_1ets5-Am4Gjt9r9tGCioz66H

Playing here without issues - my AVR receives DTS-HD MA 7.1 and plays the audio just fine… It rather looks like another AVR issue.

advancedsettings.xml =================== 
advancedsettings.xml error
---------------------- advancedsettings.xml END ---- 
----------- C7hKmH1p

Why is that?

It just means there is no advancedsettings.xml, doesn’t it?

Regrettably, the uploaded file doesn’t seem to be the same as the one in the logs.

Any file with DTS-HD MA gives the same result

The idea is, we run the very file you have made the log from and compare what our log says against yours.


OK I’ll upload the exact file
