I recently bought a Sonos ARC, wich supports DD5.1 but i am having trouble getting the DolbyDigital 5.1 output in to the Sonos.
The sonos app, shows what kind of sound it is getting, and I am a bit lost with the plenty of options, I’ve been trying them all (passthrough on and off, setting different channels, etc.)
To test I have been using a file in a high speed USB:
the same file when i put it in my iMac Plex Server I am able to see it in the build in PLEX app in the TV (LG 47LB700V ) it outputs DD5.1 according to the SONOS app.
there are so many variables in the AUDIO configuration, and I have been reading all the info in google about it but no luck, sometimes i get no central audio, the only way to hear it properly is using 2.0 channels but that is a waste of such system as the sonos ARC
My question is, can somebody tell me which would be the ideal software setup configuration for my
OSMC Raspberry Pi 3 / Sonos ARC to exploit their capacities better ?
in the AUDIO configuration now (no dialogue unless i put 2 channels)
Audio OUTPUT: HDMI
Output configuration: Best match
MAintaing original volume: off
Stereo upmix: off
include LFE: 100
Resample quality: GPU Accelerated
Dolby Digital AC3: on
Dolbi Digital Plus E-AC3: on
DTS capable: off
