I'm not sure if he is still pursuing this or not.
I just read thru that

I am at a loss trying to figure how to get my hdpvr 2 to process bistreamed audio. I am sending the signal to it from a ceton echo that offers the option of either 2.0, or bistreamed 5.1 output either via hdmi or optical.
The problem is that 5.1 from the ceton echo to the hdpvr via any of these options just produces a loud distortion. Any ideas?

Buy a BM3000-HDMI instead. Works like a charm on ALL channels.

Does anyone know if the MiBox with the android app will have the same issue with this AC3 fix and not wanting to play live TV?

just found this thread after having a few HBO problems with my new HD-PVR 2 (replacing a 10 year old original 1212).

Does this problem explain why the HD300 is unable to playback audio in a TS file that has both an AAC and Dolby 5.1 audio stream? What's weird is not all HBO shows broadcast with both streams, for example the first showing of "Big Little Lies" last night on DirecTV had an AAC component & a Dolby Digital (the one the HD300 says has no audio), but the repeat airing an hour later only had Dolby Digital, which the HD300 played fine (live). This has happened now two weeks in a row.

Edit: Man I'm old. Completely forgot about this thread and discussion about the 2's audio issues, which I pariticipated in back a few years when I bought my first HD-PVR 2.

What's strange is, that older HD-PVR 2 has produced recordings with -no audio problems- in the recordings for the past couple of years. Including live playback through extenders. Not sure what magic juju it possesses or when it started to just work. Maybe it's because it's still running on an XP machine.
