There was a question raised last year about audio pass through for the macOS version of Infuse whilst still in beta.
I could see that James had responded “TBD” in November, but no updates since and that topic was closed.
So the question is: has anyone tried doing an audio pass through from the mac?
Ideally, the mac should hand the audio bitstream to the AV receiver which would do the decoding into all the available formats, inc. DTS flavours, DD+ and Atmos correctly.
If it works, then I am looking at hooking up an Intel Mac Mini running latest macOS to a Denon receiver,using HDMI, and the receiver then decoding the audio correctly and feeding an LG Oled for the video.
I recall that this was possible in the early days with HD video and DTS or DD, but unsure about the current state of affairs.
My source material is mostly .mkv files with Atmos audio, some mp4’s with DV and Atmos or BluRay BDMV folders with DV and Atmos.
Would DV even work in this situation with the mp4 files?
I am just waiting to get hold of a Mac Mini and put these various permutations to test.
