    Unable to use BBC Sounds with external dac

    I've resurrected my SBT and everything's working fine - QoBus etc but I am unable to listen to BBC Sounds material through the external DAC. Analog o/p on SBT is good. I found an ancient thread about this but doubt it is still relevant.
    Could someone please point me in the right direction.
    Thanks

    More system & player details always helps

    As a first step - try enabling the BBC Sounds settings "Hide the audio sample rate from LMS. This can help with a specific transcoding issue on devices that can't natively support 48000"

    The DAC will support 48000 but I did nevertheless try your suggestion. Unfortunately it didn't help.

    I have also tried listening to France Musique without success. I usually listen to it on my Roberts radio with an AAC stream.

    Please tell us the name of the dac and how, exactly, it is connected to your system

    thanks

    More specific information is needed to solve your problem.

    BBC is unusual in that it uses 48kHz but SBT can play SBT 48Khz.
    SBT can play AAC natively.

    Perhaps you you have disabled some transcoding options or some special plugins installed (e.g room correction)

    Otherwise, it feels like a limitation due to your DAC and / or the connection.

    So full information is needed.
    DAC - full detail vendor & model no
    How is DAC connected to Touch - SPDIF optical/coax, USB, EDO, other etc.
    Has SBT been modded ?
    LMS version
    OS of LMS server.
    Any 3rd party plugins installed.

    @Avinunca

    For France Musique you may need this in the Additional Repositories box at the bottom of the Plugins page

    http://bpa-code.github.io/bpaplugins...playhls-v2.xml

    Though the mp3 stream should play without the addition of the repository.

    The Dac is a unique model, more research needed

    Nothing unusual in system info.
    For completeness - what are the settings for AAC under WebUI Settings/Advanced/Filetypes.

    Please confirm the BBC Stream play OK when listened through analog connections (Phono or headphone) of SBT ?

    What was the outcome of this issue you had 5 years ago?
