    How to stream DTS ?

    Hi,

    I want to stream music files using DTS codec (6 channels)
    I can play them with mplayer on my linux PC (using FFmpeg/libavcodec).
    Code:
    ==========================================================================
    Opening audio decoder: [ffmpeg] FFmpeg/libavcodec audio decoders
    libavcodec version 58.54.100 (external)
    AUDIO: 44100 Hz, 6 ch, floatle, 1411.2 kbit/16.67% (ratio: 176400->1058400)
    Selected audio codec: [ffdca] afm: ffmpeg (FFmpeg DTS)
    ==========================================================================
    For my multirooms audio, I use LMS as a server and one picoreplayer for each room.

    If I use Kodi (with a raspberry and a hdmi connection to my Denon amplifier (2700 DAB)), I can play these files.
    But, using the upnp bridge, I can not stream theses files to my Denon. I only get noise.
    Below, parameters for upnp bridge (volume set to max and replaygain switched off):

    How do you stream multi-channels files to your amplifier ?
    Can anyone help?

    IIRC They can only be played as a DTS in a DTS capable decoder after the fileis compressed into Flac first and then passed as flac to a player which then send digital signal to decoder than can play it.
