Any news on this ?
I just installed volumio 1.5 as I came from a gmrender-resurrect (DLNA) installation that I wasn’t fully satisfied with.
Too long between gaps between songs even though it should support gapless playback.
No DTS/AC3 audio passthrough.
(It was stable enough though.)
gapless playback on volumio is almost spot on… can hear a fraction of a milisecond of silence between tracks.
No DTS/AC3 passthrough … yet, as this thread also indicates.
I can confirm this as well.
Although this trick could be handy for those with DTS ripped audio tracks:
raspberrypi.org/forums/viewt … 6&p=489951
(see last comment here.)
apparently renaming a (DTS) WAV file to .flac will trick mpd into passthrough (does not work for ac3 files).
Is DTS/AC3 playback being considered as a new feature for a future release ? Or is the demand for this not that high ?
Any other platform on the PI with a DLNA renderer that supports this ?
My PI is connected to my AVR using the HDMI port.
This means multichannel audio can be passed as either passthrough or as decoded multichannel PCM (LPCM).
Either option will do fine
I am using the jriver mediacenter (windows) as the DLNA service.
It has a lot of options on what to parse to the DLNA renderer (original, pcm etc.).`
No matter what setting I use, AC3 tracks are played back as 2 channel PCM on my AVR.
