I have recently purchased a Boxee and have watched many films with HD Audio no problems ? I have a Yamaha V771. However the other day I started getting Audio Drop Outs in Super8, and it was really irritating! Is this issue hit and miss with certain movies ?
From what I understand from what I have read it's not a problem that's not going to be fixed anytime soon.
Is there any work around setting to resolve this on the Boxee i.e can the Boxee Downmix the True HD to DTS ?
Do I need to re-encode my mkv files from TrueHD to DD etc ?
If anyone could advise that would be grate thanks

me for one I've come to the conclusion we got two hopes , no hope and bob hope to having the audio drop outs fixed. sadly we was promised everything with the boxee box and the one crucial thing it's missing is the hd audio ,oh and it can't stream hd video with out buffering ,it's a square lemon.i for one are looking at the dune set up.
Yes, it can, plenty of folks can get this to work though depending on your network setup and equipment, you may have to try a number of different things first (e.g. using NFS instead of SMB for one).and it can't stream hd video with out buffering
Most folks who must have HD audio do seem to like the Dune players so you'll probably be very happy with that.
