I'm having an odd issue with the sound from two different units HDHR4-2US. On one unit I get proper 5.1 audio (VLC reports Channels: 3F2M/LFE) on one channel but on the other unit I only get stereo sound (VLC reports Channels: Stereo) on the same channel. At first I thought it was related to the splitter but I removed the splitter and tested each unit on the main line, unfortunately with the same results. Other channels have identical audio (5.1) on both units and the tests were done on identical programming. Is this a firmware bug or a hardware issue with the second unit? Both units are on the latest firmware, 20200225. Anyone else experiencing this?
I noticed this when some of my Plex recordings caused the audio receiver to switch to stereo from Dolby Digital. I removed Plex from the equation and tested the streams directly via VLC and that's how I discovered the issue.
Reception, channel detection, network issues, CableCARD setup, etc.
