General Questions

Postby kenwu » Fri Apr 21, 2017 7:20 am

It's been a while since I've seen any updates on this, so here goes ...

1) Is AC.3 (5.1) audio coming any time soon?
2) Where are the new STBs?
3) Are better encoders (e.g. HEVC, H.265) coming any time soon?
3.1) Will this be limited to the STB?

Currently we are still waiting for the middleware provider to issue a stable release of their latest server software. We have been waiting for over a year, but there were some issues in the development cycle. If 265's coming, it will come with the new middleware, but we don't have an ETA or info whether it will be available on PC/mobile

There are no immediate plans to switch to new STB's that I know of. It doesn't mean it's not happening, but nobody told me anything. I know the Android STB project has been scrapped due to difficulties in obtaining DRM certification.

There is no wealth like knowledge,
and no poverty like ignorance.

5.1 will be looked at after the new middleware (that is already over a year behind).
Maybe after the 265 encoding frees up more bandwidth for better audio (or a competitor does it :-)).
