    Fire TV Plex app no Dolby Digital audio just PCM

    Streaming movies using Plex App on my Fire TV and only PCM audio. How do you get 5.1 Dolby using the Plex app on Fire TV. I see no setting in the Plex App for turning on Dolby. I thought Plex was a major application for streaming movies, live TV. How come only PCM audio?

    Will setting Blu-Ray player digital audio output to PCM cause A/V sync issues?

    I'm wanting to play Blu-Ray and DVD discs on my Blu-Ray player. I know that the discs have 5.1 sound built into them. I'm wondering if I set my Blu-Ray player to output PCM sound, if I would have A/V sync issues when playing the discs with 5.1 sound. Or, should I set the Blu-Ray player to Bitstream?
