Hi,

I saw in another thread that a user had problems sending recorded TV programs over the home network via DLNA as Windows 7 could not decode the HE-AAC audio stream.  I have found that if you use the DMR-XW380 to reduce the quality of the recorded program to standard (only one tried so far) then the audio is transcoded to a format that Windows 7 can deal with. I can now also send the TV programs to my LG BD-390 networked BluRay player and get good video and audio. The loss of HD is not a big one for me as the LG BD-390 is networked wirelessly and struggles to keep up with HD anyway. Hope this is of use to others.

johnvick: as Windows 7 could not decode the HE-AAC audio stream.


If the main issue is decoding the Freeview|HD HE-AAC audio, then it's a question of providing a suitable codec which a standard Windows build may not have. The free Monogram AAC codec does the job quite well.

Thanks, just tried it but it didn't work, possibly as I have 64 bit WIndows 7.
