Am I Getting Full True-HD?

(Simmy) #1

Hi guys.

Got some atmos demo material off the internet in MP4 and MKV form. All of them play perfectly on my Xbox ONE.

However if i play the content via the TVs player, i get no sound.

Xbox is connected to the TV via HDMI ( obviously ) and the TV is connected to my AV receiver via HDMI ARC

My AV receiver supports TrueHD ( I checked the specs )

So my question is. I must not have a TrueHD TV, however the Xbox ONE is, and so is my AV receiver.



What hdmi cables are you using? Are they both above HDMI 1.1? Is your TV currently set to pass through mode ?

Also, do you mean the player built into the TV ? It might not support the codec needed via in-built app, they are rarely updated :slight_smile:

HDMI 2.0 mate. And yes, passthrough via the HDMI ARC connector.

And yes, thats what I mean.
Plays fine via Xbox. but not the TVs player.

Tried enabling " Atmos " in my Xbox settings and it won’t let me.
DTS and Dolby Digital work fine however.

So if i play an Atmos/TrueHD file via my Xbox, what am i actually getting ?

As @Dannytc suggested, it’s more than likely the TV that is missing the required codec. You could re-encode the file but if it’s working through your Xbox you might as well play it via that.
