Hey guys - sorry i missed this thread earlier. A heads up that if you are having issues and aren't getting feedback on them, you can send me a private message with a link to the thread and i'll be sure to read/respond.
We did a lot of testing with DD and DTS over spdif, most of it pretty recently. I'm guessing all of the clips you guys are testing with passthrough properly from another source (so you know your receiver decodes them properly)?
Maybe something to try -
go to settings -> general -> sound and turn off navigation sounds
switch the audio out to analog
switch it back to spdif and enable DD passthrough
edit: turn off your receiver and turn it back on
go directly to a DD movie and try to play
Is this only for sony 5.1 setups? Will see if we can get a repro.
