No audio thru headphones

Post by bewright » Sun Mar 22, 2020 10:33 am

Accessing HDHomeRun thru a NVidia Shield, The audio works fine thru the TV and sound system. Audio does not work thru the TV audio out to bluetooth headphones playing live or when recorded using Plex and played back. Is this a known isuue? All other apps on the Shield work fine using the headphones.

Turn off the AC3 passthrough in the app. You might also. Need to change Android TV surround mode to off to force the app decide the AC3 to stereo so that your stereo headphone can have audio.

Thanks for the reply and a heads up as to where to start looking, Issue resolved.
For any others it was a Samsung TV, had to change the "Sound/ExpertSettings/Digital Output Audio Format" from "Dolby Digital" to "PCM"

Thanks again
