What are the audio options?

What are the audio options?

Postby BlueSky » Wed Nov 06, 2019 8:43 pm

Under the Audio Setting and Audio Encoder tabs, there is a dropdown for Audio Channel but the video I saw never shows what is in this dropdown. What are the available options in this dropdown?

What I really would like to know is, if the source has 5.1 audio on its HDMI port, is there any way to pass that audio stream through so that the stream output by the 2604 will also have 5.1 audio? It seems like when designing these devices the focus has always been on better video, but preserving multichannel audio is important too, and yet somehow that never gets mentioned in the specs. I don't want to be limited to 1960's quality 2-channel stereo audio on the output stream if the source has 5.1 audio!

Hi,
Sorry, The encoder can't support 5.1 channel output audio, it can only output stereo audio or mono audio.

Do you think TBS will ever have an encoder that supports 5.1 audio? I just don't understand why all the emphasis seems to be placed on supporting higher resolution video yet no one seems to care about improving the audio quality. Why would someone want to watch the highest resolution video with only stereo audio?

Hi,
The chip can't support that 5.1 encode, maybe some other chip can do it, maybe in the future.
