Hi,

afaik all current boxen have audio signal on all outputs that the box have so it is normal that you get a signal on DVI(?)/HDMI and SP/DIF.

What dreambox are we talking about? The last dreambox supported by OpenPLi was the dm825.

Of course Erik is referring to the DM800se or the DM800 or the DM8000.
Mijn schotel is een T90 met 10 LNB's. Daarnaast voor de fun nog een draaibaar systeem met een Triax TD 78.

Dreamboxen heb ik niet meer. Verder nog een een VU+ duo2 met 500Gb harddisk + een VU+ Uno, Zero, Solo 4K, Ultimo 4K, Zero 4K, Uno 4Kse. + ook nog een Xtrend ET4000. Daarnaast heb ik ook nog diverse andere modellen w.o. een Formuler F4, ET8500, ET7500, Mut@nt 2400HD, Xsarius Fusion HD se en verder nog wel het e.e.a. waarmee op verzoek vanalles wordt getest. Iemand moet het tenslotte doen. ;) :)

Voor centrale opslag van media gebruik ik een Qnap 219P met tweemaal 2 Tb harddisks.

Yeah exactly, the SE.

 

I never had one of these so I doesn't appear to stick in my memory. The numbering scheme of DMM is at least fuzzy.

Thanks All.

 

it was straightforward, if down mix is Enable on AC3/5.1, the Audio is output to SPDIF and DVI, but if Disable then it is only on SPDIF

Which is logical, because officially DVI can't carry audio (let alone AC3). Inofficially it can, just like HDMI does (same bitstream). But apparently no luck for AC3. Apparently DMM didn't care.

That's not true, AC3 is always output on DVI doesn't matter if you enable (as PCM) or disable (as bitstream) the downmix option.

He can also only talk about DM800PVR or DM8000 as no other box ever had a DVI port.
