Does anyone know of any streamers that will do this?

Im currently using Plex media server streaming to a Samsung tv and a Roku box but Plex doesnt support HD audio. I wondered if theres anything out there that does?

I've been streaming BDMV Bluray rips (including HD audio) via an Oppo BDP103 - works great!

I've done it with my CA 751BD and I think I've done it with Plex before now.

Plex supports HD sound fine. Probably a connection and/or settings problem on your Roku.

 

Plenty of streamers support HD audio - Popcorn hour, WD Live Hub, Xstreamer etc.

If I was buying one now - I'd look at the Popcorn A-400 as it supports streaming 3D BD ISO's.

The previous version had many issues. Is this any better? Many are reporting bugs in the new version as well.

RE: Streaming movies with HD audio?

Thanks for your comments. I didnt realise there were so many streamers out there. Ive read a couple of reviews of the popcorn a400 and it apperas to have reliability issues at the moment. Does anyone have any recommendations for a streamer with a plex-like interface?

By the way plex onły supports hd audio from the pc/mac media centre but there are no plex compatable streamers that support hd audio yet.
