Greetings audio format gurus I’d like to turn on 5.1 recording but doing so disables playback via one of my roku ultras that isn’t connected to a 5.1 capable device (Panasonic plasma TV, who’s hdmi input happily informs roku of this deficiency…)
Question is… what are the remedies? My Old tivo and DirecTV boxes must have down converted , and the broadcast signal itself must contain both pcs and ac3 cause i haven’t encountered this issue outside of tablo which (if I read correctly) is either/or and not both.
Anyway if Roku has to see a 5.1 capable device then I’ve got to either replace the TV or hang a cheap avr in front of it? Too bad… the old 1080p plasma is a good display.
Calibrations, corrections and advice gratefully received
