video_ts ac3 passthrough

Anyone know why nito doesn’t support ac3 5.1 audio passthrough? Playback of video_ts files with a 5.1 AC3 audio track gets converted to 2ch stereo. Whats the deal?


This isn’t the only patchstick I’ve heard of with this problem, I’ll see if I can find out what the problem is.

This is a limitation of nitoTV not supporting AC3 pass through. It may be incorporated in future versions.

Then what does “AC3 Passthrough on/off” do on the Files/Settings menu?
