  1. Audio Passthrough on Plex


    Why does Microsoft actively block full audio passthrough for DTS-HD or TrueHD codecs on Plex app for Xbox One (X)? Nvidia Shield does it, even Raspberry Pi 4 can do it with LibreELEC! Plex developers (however disconnected they might be from the community)
    mentioned in numerous threads that Microsoft doesn't allow full audio passthrough for all codecs because they want menu sounds and stuff integrated in the apps, and only one app in Xbox ecosystem is allowed full audio passthrough and that is the native Media
    Player app. Plex at its core is a media player; users don't want to hear menu sounds while watching a movie with TrueHD 7.1 surround sound. If I pay for an expensive AVR, and an expensive console that advertises itself as an "all-in-one" media player, I expect
    to have basic functionalities like full audio passthrough. This is terrible otherwise.

    I think about that, was be greate if we can use TrueHD but we need know with the Microsoft can have your motive to don't give this in Stream system, maybe the MS don't have the copyright sometimes to turn disponible sometimes

    That's a terrible excuse that doesn't even touch the topic at hand tangentially. I own the disc based media having bought it at store. And I want the convenience of not having to carry the said media when I travel. Imagine flying with a bunch of disks when
    you visit your sibling. We both own AVR and Xbox One X and a pretty good Dolby Atmos setup. But we'll be stuck to what we've planned to watch before I got on the plane. Moreover, with Plex, I won't have to flip through my Blu-ray collection just to find one
    movie when I want to chill, I can just search it on my Plex.

    I realize this seems like a first-world-problem, but it is a legitimate one. Microsoft shouldn't be in the business of moral policing with their console products; just like how they aren't with their PC's.

    It would certainly be good to see this feature added.

    However there is probably a reason it isn't available yet.

    DTS-HD and TrueHD I believe are usually only found on disc based media and not on digital downloads so it is probably offered only via the disc drive as there isn't a "legitimate" way of having a digital movie with these formats. Just a thought.

    They will acknowledge the issues when the PS4 sends this console to the junk yard if they don't start adding the simplest of functions. It's ridiculous. Already darn near got the HDD over half full from the 10 games I have. And no, I'm not gonna uninstall
    them and reinstall when I get a urge to play them either.

    Yeah, I also noticed my cable box looked blurry through the xbox. so I don't even bother to use it for that. I would if I could still watch my cable box without it being on with a HDMI pass through.
