DTS audio drop outs
Hello

This issue has been talked about a lot and I can't understand why this thread was closed:

http://www.networkedmediatank.com/showth...hp?tid=576

I just can confirm the problem with the firmware upgrade:

Yesterday I upgraded to the latest firmware, tested with some HD.mkv files
and still have audio drop outs. Downgraded to 01-17-090204-15-POP-403 (01 June 2009), drop-outs are gone.

This seems to be a problem with the firmware and not the files!

Why can't this problem be solved?

This only happens with DTS Audio and is very anoying!

RE: DTS audio drop outs
Started happening to me also. Never happened in the past and now 2 consecutive MKV movies with DTS dropping every now & then. Both playback fine on PC. I had not downloaded the last firmware update (01-17-100516-15-pop-403-000 August), but having now done so after this problem started it is still the same, so i can't blame this latest firmware version.

Maybe the original topic has been closed because reverting back to 01-17-090204-15-POP-402-000 solved the issue for many people. Have you tried that?

Thank you, I'll give this a shot. I'm having the same problem.


Still, rolling back the firmware doesn't seem like much of a "fix."

RE: DTS audio drop outs
DTS dropouts in some MKVs.

I wrote this for the A-110 Player that I own.

For the remux to work you have to extract the DTS audio track from the mkv container and then remux it back in.
If you just remux the audio directly from the original mkv container the stuttering will remain.

Steps:
Download mkvtoolnix v4.4.0 and MKVExtractGUI-2 v2.2.1

Open up mkvextract gui
add the mkv file with the problem dts audio
Check the DTS track, and extract it from the file.

Open up mkvmerge gui
Add the original video
Uncheck the original audio track
Add the audio track you extracted while using mkvextract, and make sure its checked

Make sure the proper audio track is selected as default
Make sure the extra options for compresssion on all tracks are set to none

Click Start Muxing

Test

This worked to fix all of the mkv's I was experiencing dts dropouts with.

RE: DTS audio drop outs
I had the same DTS audio issues after a recent firmware update. I was about to research reverting back to the earlier version posted above but I thought I'd give the latest firmware a go, 01-17-101217-15-POP-403-000 and it seems to be ok now.

I'll keep an eye (ear) out in case it's still happening though.

I can confirm the same.

Upgraded my two Poppi's A-110 to the lastest firmware released just before Christmas on the 23. December 2010. The release note shows a "12. Minor tweak for MKV DTS drop out issue".

I have tried a couple of MKV Files with DTS audio and it seems to work. I will keep an "ear" on it and report again.

Looks like the problem is finally solved! Thanks guys!
