       Disable all audio decoding on WDHDTV?

    I am wondering if it is possible to disable all audio decoding on the WD box (AC3) etc. so it is all passed to my receiver.

    Reason being I have entirely MKV Bluray files, most of which are DTS and work without a flaw, but some of the AC3 ones (not all) the audio comes out all messed and staticy.

    I have a feeling if instead of the WD box decoding the AC3, if the receiver did it (since its a fairly high end one - Pioneer VSX 919AHK) it would work fine.

    Is this possible?

    If not can I extract the AC3 out of the MKV and convert it to DTS?

    In my case using optical cable and my DDW660 from Sony, the WDTV doesn't decode anything. It makes a passthru for all MKV files.

    Why do you think yours is decoding??
