Maybe I've been misunderstanding :

I thought Bitstream was the raw data has encoded already. So, you shouldn't be able to select either DD or DTS ?
What if you're running a DD track or stereo track with output Bitsream DTS - or vice versa ?


Let me go check my Xbox settings as well

If you select DTS or DD the Xbox One will convert all audio (not already using the selected codec) to the selected lossy format and output it as such.

If you select PCM/Uncompressed the Xbox One will decode the format (if necessary) and pass it along unaltered. On console PCM/Uncompressed is the better quality audio option.

Ok So Just Double Checked
The One s Has these Options At the Moment
You Can Send Audio out
Stereo
5.1 Uncompressed
7.1 Uncompressed
Bitstream in Either Dts or Dolby

In Uncompressed my Amp Say Multi In
Bitstream is says Signal is dolby or Dts
Like Ken suggested...5.1 or 7.1 uncompressed (depending on your speaker configuration) will give you the best sound. It appears that this Xbox does not have auto/native bitstream options, which seems strange.
Lend you my ears..?

The Update Is Meant to Fix it but I couldn't wait and bought the Oppo 203 so the Xbox can now be for Games

I'd Wait for the Scorpion in My Opinion
I Have the Xbox One s It's A Great Machine for games
However the Lack of Bitstream audio out is Annoying me and the update has no release date
I've Now had it for 3 months and Haven't watched any of my 4k Movies do to this

Playsation defiantly missed the target forgetting to add a UHD Disc player in the PS4 Pro

Hi was wondering if your Xbox S was purchased locally, or imported?

Most reviews I have read rate the PS4 Pro superior to Xbox S as a gaming console and it has superior processing power. If I only wanted 4K, I would wait for dedicated 4k players to arrive. This should be soon, they have already been available in the UK for months now.
