No Dolby surround on Fetch

Recommended Posts

Hi All

 

long time member, first time poster.......

 

i have just set up my fetch tv mighty which is going to my Yamaha AV with a Jaycar splitter between to remove the handshake issue.

 

i am not receiving any Dolby surround from any of the fetch channels.  I have the unit set up as 5.1 in sound settings.

 

when watching Netflix it comes up as Dolby on the amp, switch back to streaming channels removes the Dolby and only shows PCM.

 

Any suggestions?

 

cheers

jon

jon am using a splitter as well ( have to due to fetch having a screwed hdmi implementation that doesnt handle passing through AVRs)

and no you will not get much past PCM for FTA TV but not because of anything to do with the fetch as such. its just our broadcasters that dont do much past pcm. in early days of HD TV am talking 2004 !!! we got some DD5.1 broadcasts with the hd tv test loops. some broadcasts with some select programming e.g. harry potter movies or other special broadcasts would do DD5.1 but i havent seen any for a long time

 

i will explore now mention things. but again dont think anything to do with the fetch its the broadcasters I suspect. the fetch only has two options form memory stereo or multichannel.

 

ps i use my marantz processor to upsample which gives a great enveloping result using dolby surround using 7.1.4 speakers :D

4k hdcp 2.2 thing. it cant handshake through a "repeater" due to failing on fetch part to consider people would ever run through an avr. i.e. they expect to run direct through to display. without the splitter will either get a black screen or hdcp error. and this is even if hooking up a non 4k hdcp screen which you would expect would just pass 1080p through to.

 

the splitters unknowingly e.g. the jay car, eBay, comsol office works one all act as hdcp strippers and hence allow passing of signal. have not tried any 4k content off fetch though so no idea how the splitter interact in those cases.

Hi Al

 

i forgot to thank you for the reply.

I rented a movie to see the quality through fetch and played in Dolby so looks as though you are correct regarding FTA to.

 

cheers
