Hi,

Until recently I was able to play AC3 and DTS files, encoded by FLAC. Now I only get white noise with my SqueezeBox. I have tried all 3 SqueezeCenter versions: stable/testing/unstable. Can anyone confirm this?

Thanx.

Any chance your volume is down half way?

if its not the volume, check your streaming file formats...

Thanks for the replies. The volume is not half way. The files I'm trying to play, weren't a problem earlier, and I haven't changed anything, except for checking the different SqueezeCenter versions, trying to solve this problem.

I'm on 7.01-19352 (older than the 'official' release of 7.01) and it works for me on my Transporter. Can you try reverting to an earlier version? I've noticed other issues with 7.01 official and went back.

Are you playing FLAC or WAV?
I think you need to have FLAC-FLAC (native) set and FLAC-WAV (disabled) for this to work. (in settings - advanced - file types)

I use AC3/DTS and haven't noticed anything. I'll double check things when I get home to make sure it's still working.

I have tried your suggestion, but unfortunately, white noise, also after a squeezecenter service restart.

It seemed that "Digital Volume Control" was changed to "Volume Control adjusts digital output", while it should have been "Digital output level is fixed". Problem solved.

Good...that was always the most likely explanation!
