Are there any tv-sets that will transcode all audio to Dolby Digital?
I have several Sonos 5.1 systems throughout my household, including a Playbar, a Playbase, a Playbeam plus sub and surround-speakers.
I have a Samsung BD Player that transcode any audio to DD 5.1 and my Apple TV does the same which generally my issues with DTS and Dolby Digital Plus on these systems.
However, my Chromecast can't do the same trick - meaning that I only get stereo on Netflix via the Chromecast - and in the future I might have the same issue with other devices and other audioformats not being supported.
My Xbox One has an HDMI-input and can also transcode to DD 5.1. So by plugging in a Chromecast to the Xbox One I am actually able to get DD 5.1 via Netflix. Unfortunately, having the Xbox running to passthrough the Chromecast-signal is not an elegant solution.
Thus it would be a much simpler solution, if my TV could simply transcode any audio-input to DD 5.1 as the Xbox does.
