Hi,

We have a HTPC recording Freeview DVB-T via GBPVR.  Live TV and Recordings play back fine within GBPVR.

We've just got a laptop and I've set up Media streaming via Media Player, so we can view recordings on the laptop via wireless, or over the net.

This all works fine, except the laptop has no audio.

Playing back the files via the HTPC in media player, same result, no audio.  However via GBPVR they are fine.  I have the monogram AAC codec and AC3 Filter installed on the HTPC.

Is this a compatiability issue with Windows Media Player and the AAC and AC3  audio formats?  I thought that Windows 7 Media Player would be able to play these back.

Just curious if anyone has played with the media streaming and got audio to work with Freeview DVB-T recordings.  Other clips (ie: quicktime movie trailers) and mp3 files work fine.

I've just tested this and noticed the same thing. Seems a bit strange to me..

I have GB-PVR installed on my other desktop here in a client/server configuration and had only used that for playback/live TV and that works fine.

All I can assume is for some reason media player isn't using the Monogram AAC or AC3 Filter plugins... shame really as this would be a very cool thing when away from home.

Tried 'plugins' in media player setup but that only seems to take you to a Media Player plugin page.

Pity... Stupid Freeview codecs... Stupid Mediaplayer.. :)

Media Player by default will use the Microsoft DTV video and audio codecs which handle H.264 and AAC-LATM audio and AC3. There is no logical reason why it won't work.

You could try posting over in the GB-PVR forums and see what sub has to say, I know he posts here often so he may see this.

Yes.. Odd.. I won't post to the GBPVR forums though as it's hardly GBPVR related (recordings play fine within it).. its more a Windows 7/MediaPlayer issue.. Odd though.. You would think if Windows 7 handles AAC and AC3 natively there would be no problem. I still have the monogram audio codec installed and ac3 filter on the HTPC... if I don't have them then I have no audio (for AC3 on TV3 recordings at least).
