i have read several threads on this, have changed the audio midi to 48hz and 2 ch 24 bit

i am not sure what else to do

works on the 2 main speakers but not my center speaker

using hdmi from mini to the hk avr 3600

my main use for this is to play dvds

if i download this vlc and use it instead of the regular apple dvd player will it work better/correctly?

any info is appreciated

You can use VLC, but the one thing that annoys me is that I have to select the digital output every time I start VLC.

Otherwise, I'm guessing it's a 2010 mini with 10.6?

i just bought it new, so it is the latest mini and the software is all up to date

that is a hassle having to reset to digital each time

does vlc seem to be the easiest and most responsive with mac stuff?
or is there a better video player that will allow all my speakers to work?

I'm in 10.5 now, but in the prefs for DVD Player, is there a setting for Digital Output?

in the regular apple dvd player i do have a setting for hdmi digital, i can only set it if there is no disc in

but it makes no difference, i still do not have center speaker even if i set it digital

i will try vlc and see if i can get it to work
