I have been having this problem using every beta of tvOS. When Infuse audio settings are set to passthrough, the audio, when playing anything with Dolby Digital, is replaced by static/hissing after 30-60 seconds of playing the video.
I have several movies with separate True HD and regular Dolby Digital audio tracks, and it only happens when I select the regular Dolby track. The problem is solved when I set Infuse audio settings to auto. This, however, introduces lip sync issues using any form og Dolby audio. DTS sound is unaffected, but doesn’t pass through in auto mode. My receiver only receives Dolby Digital, No matter the original source.
Hope it makes sense I really love your app, but thes issues are very annoying. Is it just beta related or something else?
If it helps the Apple TV 4K is directly connected to my LG B7 and I use a Denon X1000 for audio over ARC.
Sorry off topic, but saw you had the LG B7. Is the B7 working great with Apple 4k? I’ve got an ipad pro 10.5 humming along and Apple 4k shipping to me. Thinking really hard about trying to snag a deal on an 2017 LG E7 or G7 tomorrow. Saw some griping on AVSforum about UHD and nits black level that has me questioning this seemingly awesome combination.
This is a disease lol. We may be in the same club shortly as I just snagged a deal on one of these:
Pester me in about a week and maybe I can reproduce the issue with my soundbar.
Big, big question. Does your system display that the LG with or without Infuse is passing 24 bit sound over passthrough(/hdmi arc?) Had a friend bring over Cambridge Audio upconverting player which only showed 16 bit from LG optical though I must say most everything played from Infuse sounded quite 24 bit. I’m just tickled pink with the Apple TV 4K. Hope they do Atmos soon.
Can you try connecting the Apple TV directly to your receiver and see if that helps?
Chances are there is something on your TV that is changing Infuse’s audio. If you’re using optical from your TV to receiver, then you will be limited to 16-bit compressed formats, so enabling Infuse’s Passthrough option could help.
