What is a optimal or recommended system audio setup parametars (or connection type beside mine) for passthrough audio.


Enable all passthrough options and set audio to 7.1

Thanks, Best Match or Optimised in my case?

Best Match usually works more like you would expect, and sends whatever is in the media via HDMI.

Optimized sometimes gets “stuck” and keeps trying to send the sound format from the last media.

Best match is the default and recommended by us (also in your case). Optimized is best avoided.

I was on a commute and searching on the phone, so not a thorough search. I will do my homework now.
