well, i’m using the latest atvflash. i am connected via HDMI to my av receiver and i know that it is capable of receiving 5.1 channels: the atv splash menu and downloaded iTunes movies play appropriately, the receiver “sees” 5.1 channels.
yet, despite much reading of the handbrake and atvflash forums, i can not get nitoTV to see 5.1 on my ripped dvd’s. AC3 passthrough is enabled in the appropriate atvflash settings (i have tried this with ATV files installed, also with it removed: in the latter case, I believe the only AC3 passthrough option is in Sapphire(?)). dolby digital out is enabled in the atv settings. and i have, i believe, properly encoded the audio tracks: first, via the AppleTV presets on handbrake, then reversing these so that AC3 passthrough is track one; AAC stereo track two. Neither works. and sapphire plays no audio whatsoever.
Obviously, I’m quite frustrated. Any help would be appreciated…
