    Hi,

    This has been something that has bugged me for awhile. Is it just me or does the revue pass almost no sound to the center channel in Digital mode?

    Played a movie today with 5.1 DD, and couldn't hear the dialog at all. As far as I could tell putting my hand on the cone there was no sound coming from center. Tried the same file on my LG DVD player and it had nice loud center channel.

    Does the Revue decode and re-encode or otherwise alter the digital audio stream? if so is there a way to "pass through" digital audio on the revue?

    Any help or suggestions much appreciated.

    Netflix App should be Ok (w/ 5.1 content). It outputs 5.1 PCM via hdmi and 5.1DD over optical (w/sound from all speakers). However, stereo (2ch PCM) content (over hdmi) are converted to 7.1 PCM (w/sound from LF, RT & Sub speakers only - no center) - workaround: Optical.

    To explain more - quick question,:)
    What is the audio source? Chrome, App(name) or STB(make/model)?
