Multi channel sound output not possible?

Postby panservolvo » Fri Aug 10, 2012 4:41 pm

I am the owner of a handy little pc thing like this and it seems to be working perfectly exept one little thing.
I cant get it to output multi channel (5.1) sound to my reciever. No matter what source i play, it does only output 2.0 sound. Does not the mk802 support 5.1 output?

Haven't anybody tested this? Can't be only me who have tested the sound on this?

I haven't managed to get the MK802 to pass thru surround sound to my receiver either. The player always decodes the surround sound and downsamples it to stereo. This should be a software issue though. I have yet to try out other video players to look for one that does a pass thru instead of downsampling.

Thanks for your reply
I have tried: dice player and mkplayer without any luck.
I am desperate to find a solution to this, I'd pay for a fix ;)

So would I. Now that it can output at 1080p, I hope this audio issue gets fixed soon. Then I can dump my WDTV.

I installed linux (lubuntu i believe) to se if it worked better, but still only 2.0 sound.

Could it be the cable? Has 5.1 audio ever worked?

Probably not. I have tried with the cable I use from my pc with an adapter, but still 2.0 sound.

Hmmm, it appears that this might be a common problem in Android.

I noticed this posting, but have not tried it yet: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1831111

Nevermind, I tried VLC Beta, BS Player and RockPlayer on AC3 and DTS. They all play back only 2 channels as well. Strangely RockPlayer displays the Media Info as 2 channel.
