Hi, I have just done the December update and my Yamaha 107 soundbar 7.1 no longer works with certain audio types. The bass works but the other channels do not. I have tried changing the output configuration from optimised to best match and fixed with no luck. I have also tried stereo up mixing which didn’t help either.
My setup is Vero 4K to TV via HDMI, Soundbar to TV via HDMI ARC.
Can you let us know the make and model of the soundbar so we can check its capabilities? I notice you have DTS HD enabled for example, but not DD. It seems strange that DTS would be supported but not DD.
If you disable passthrough temporarily and reboot, do you get audio? I’m not suggesting this as a long term solution.
Yeah the make and model is Yamaha YAS107 7.1 Soundbar. Prior to the update it worked fine and I haven’t changed any settings. I am getting some audio, for instance, I hear the theme tune just not the actors speaking. Other audio (like this: https://paste.osmc.tv/iyosoqexop.vhdl) work fine. This audio is also having the same problem too, which used to work fine: https://paste.osmc.tv/inegiduluv.vhdl
Rebooting and disabling passthrough does not make a difference. I still hear everything other than the voices.
The soundbar says that it only supports 2 channel LPCM.
If you play a multi-channel track that is not DD, DTS or EAC-3, it will be downmixed to two channels. If you enable AC3 transcoding then you can have it sent as 5.1 channels instead. 5.1 channels via AC3/DTS/DD is the highest configuration that your receiver advertises support for in its EDID.
