    Amazon Prime Video app 5.1 on 7.1 speakers problem

    The x3700h has been solid for me and I got a great open box deal at https://www.safeandsoundhq.com/

    Amazon Prime Video app 5.1 on 7.1 speakers problem

    I can confirm this does not happen on the Denon. I mainly tested with The Rig tv series as that was the first DD+ show on prime that came to mind. With native and direct mode it plays as 5.1 with LCR and Surround right and left as expected. With DD+ Dolby Surround upmix(my preferred config)I...

    Amazon Prime Video app 5.1 on 7.1 speakers problem

    I have a similar setup to yours, so I'll drop my rear height channels so I can add the rear surround channels. Is there a specific show or movie on prime I should try or does this happen with everything? My AVR is a Denon X3700h and I also use the Nvidia Shield (2017 pro). LG C2 as well.

    Amazon Prime Video app 5.1 on 7.1 speakers problem

    I'm currently on an 5.2.4 setup, but plan to add 2 channels for 7.2.4 as soon as my Emotiva BasX 3 amp arrives which will hopefully ship out sometime this coming week. I'll be sure to test this as soon as it comes in. Do you have Dolby Surround or DTS-X Nerual upmixing turned on, on your...

    Destiny 2

    Jumped on after taking a break for several months, and my god the pvp sandbox is horrible. This has to be worst I can recall since stasis was introduced.

    XBOX ONE X: A viable 4K UHD Disc Player?

    Short answer is yes. Are there better players, sure, but your console should do just fine.

    UHD Blu-Ray playback on HDR10+ ?

    I have a ASUS BW-16D1HT and flashed the firmware on Windows 11. Not sure what the hurdles were in previous years, but its super easy now.

    No 5.1 from S/PDIF out of motherboard or DAC/AMP

    DD Live and DTS connect can encode audio from a Windows machine into Dolby Digital and DTS respectively, DD+ is the successor to vanilla Dolby Digital and exceeds the bandwidth of optical. And yes, a common issue with DD Live and DTS connect is latency, but that doesn't have anything to do with...

    No 5.1 from S/PDIF out of motherboard or DAC/AMP

    Have you tried this https://www.reddit.com/r/netflix/comments/kw216o/netflix_app_on_pc_overrules_audio_settings/ I'm surprised you ever got the decode signal with Netflix as I believe DD+ is too much for optical.

    DAC / AMP; What Settings?

    I believe you would choose stereo/headphone as the Soundblaster is just upmixing the stereo signal to virtual surround.

    Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon (From Software)

    Those were the days. That failsafe also allowed you to unlock the 9-Ball AC features like laser blade projectiles and firing a grenade launcher while mobile.

    Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon (From Software)

    Agreed. Loved the old games, but I doubt I'll purchase if it turns into armoredsouls.

    HTPC - no more?

    Finished watching Dune last night, no issues to report. Just 180 more to go lol.

    HTPC - no more?

    Ripped Dune 2021 UHD, main feature Dolby TrueHD and the DD 5.1. Came out to 74GB and took an hour to rip. Playing with original quality and Atmos pass-through without issue. At least not yet, I'm only 10 minutes into watching, but I'll update you after.

    Have you tried VLC media player?

    HTPC - no more?

    For me its the ease and convenience of Netflix, but with my entire full quality Blu-ray collection. May seem petty or lazy to some, but its a big deal for a lot of us. This is just one of many reasons someone would pursue a setup like this.

    HTPC - no more?

    I should get my optical drive in today and ill try to rip one of my UHD films and let you know. The drive is the Asus BW-16D1HT. I'll need to flash the firmware first, but hopefully i can get through it all tonight and report back tomorrow.

    Did you find a solution to the audio stuttering? I'll be getting my uhd optical drive tomorrow and hope to run a similar setup :/

    [Somewhat Alive] MEGASALE: JBL Studio Series Home Audio Speakers (590, 580, 570, 530, 520c, 550p Subwoofer)

    Good to know. Ill stick with the 504C until I can find a better match. I was not impressed with the JBL 520C, its the only speaker from the 5 Studio series that I have not been impressed with.

    [Somewhat Alive] MEGASALE: JBL Studio Series Home Audio Speakers (590, 580, 570, 530, 520c, 550p Subwoofer)

    Agreed. Ordered a pair of 590s to replace my 580 LR channels. I may replace my current center (klipsch 504c) with one of the 580s, but I'm hesitant as I would have to lay the 580 down horizontally.

    eVGA Supernova 16OOw P+ $199

    I know several of their PSs are Seasonic rebrands, but not sure about this particular one. With that said, with the 10 year warranty and good user reviews I'm willing to give it a shot. EVGA hasn't let me down yet. I've been using the 1300w G2 for 5 years or so now.

    Destiny 2

    You're right about those nuances. I've been trying to get better at choosing my battles more wisely and disengaging when things aren't in my favor. I'm also trying to work on my hand cannon accuracy. I noticed the guys that can consistently get the 3 tap typically dominate.

    Destiny 2

    Crucible has been brutal for the last couple weeks. I consider myself above average in pvp, but lately it feels like I'm getting wrecked much more often. I still enjoy it, but maybe I'm getting too old to keep up in the crucible lol.

    Agreed. I cant wrap my head around how the devs seem so out of touch with what players want.

    Definitely the anniversary. Season pass gives you some leveling bonuses, but the anniversary buys you actual game content, dungeons, gear etc

    Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy

    Have you tried using the application specific setting in the Nvidia control panel? Its been a while since I've done this, but you should be able to add the game's executable and specify settings, specifically setting the performance mode to "high performance".

    The core i9 12900K used 2.3x power than the Ryzen 5950x in official benchmark

    It seems Intel admits they need to retest Ryzen on Windows 11 as the cache patches were not installed. I guess we'll have to wait for reviews before we can verify the power disparity claims...

    The core i9 12900K used 2.3x power than the Ryzen 5950x in official benchmark

    Allegedly the new flagship Intel used 2.3x more power than the 5950x in official benchmark, and the recently released AMD cache fixes were not installed. I'm not sure how reliable the article is, but if true, Intels new big dog CPU isn't quite as impressive as I thought it would be...

    Creative Labs Refurbs. G5, G6, X3, AE-5. $69.99-$99.99

    Been rocking the G6 for a couple years now. Its a fine device for gaming and music with a nice pair of headphones. The high gain switch can feed my headphones that require a bit more juice to get the most out of them.
