I was unaware that the Fire TV XBMC did not play certain MP4 and MKV files with Dobly Digital.

I came across three different files one was a 2 were Mp4's and one was an Mkv that XBMC recognized as 5.1 files.

1 - I made sure that passthrough was enable to goto my receiver along with DTS enabled

2 - I was unable to find an updated media analyzer software to figure out what how the audio was encoded so I know what doesn't play on this system

3 - I then took the same files and I played them on my Midnight Mx2 w/ xbmc 13.1 and they both were identified and played properly in 5.1 on my receiver.

4 - I have used my Firetv with a ton of DTS and Dolby Digital files however these three for some reason do not work.



Does anyone know a good media analyzer software that will give me the correct information?


Also I'm assuming I have to wait for an updated Firetv firmware to fix this issue ?



I am running xbmc 13.2 not rooted but side loaded. Passtrhough is enabled correctly in the audio settings. XBMC recognizes the files as 5.1 but will not play that one my receiver.

Please let me know

thanks
