Topic # 69142 4-Oct-2010 08:37 Send private message

I've come across a little feature of the T-Box that I'm not sure if its deliberate or not but is a bit of an issue.

It appears that with HD 5.1 programs, the centre channel is not getting mixed into the Left+Right RCA output. These programs then become unwatchable as you can't hear a word of what people are saying.

Does anyone know if there is a setting that needs to be tweaked to get it to work or is it a missing feature/defect?

Just for interests sake and for anyone else that may have the issue is it not just a matter of setting the audio output or it is something that a user cannot fix themselves?

Thanks - will do when I get home tonight. I'm going to switch to the optical output at some stage so guess it won't be a problem long term anyhow (I'm assuming that the fix won't disable 5.1 completely? :) )

No, the fix won't disable the Dolby.. it will fix it.

It's likely it might not be able to be fixed without assistance.  Hence the request for your details to look.
