  • Avi Audio issues

    I have a bunch of movies that I created years ago with DVDFAB with .avi extensions. I copy them to the DMS internal drive but no audio plays
    at all. They play fine on my PC. Any ideas?

    What are you using to play them on the PC? Check your audio settings on the DMS, Passthrough may not work with an AVI file. Check one of the ones that won't play with MediaInfo.

    I don't have any AVIs on mine but I will make a short one and try it.

      They play with Windows 10 Movies and TV as well as Windows Media Player,

      I'm pretty sure passthrough is off. I tried it set to Auto as well

        My old avi's work perfectly, but pass through does not as I'm unable to adjust volume. A speaker plus x appears plus something about pass through either not working or unable to perform task.

          It's really strange. I have my DMS going through an HDMI hub and ISO's play fine. When I try an AVI movie the sound doesn't play.
          While the AVI is playing if I switch ports on the hub to a different port and then back the sound starts playing. If I stop and restart the movie I have the same problem.
          I tried moving the DMS to a different port on the hub nothing changes.
