    I received Maze Runner recently on Blu Ray and it didn't play on my Panasonic BD50 blu ray, but it played on the Xbox One. The thing is, playing by Xbox One, I don't get Master Audio. Does the Xbox One yet stream Master Audio, if so how do I get it to do so?

    The XB1 can't bitstream lossless audio but it can convert it to PCM and output that which is every bit as good, just won't say DTS-HD or TrueHD on your amp.

    Have set the xbox to bit stream lossless, but maybe a setting on my amp isn't right as I was getting dolby digital (basically same as I get on a HD transmission on a sky movie), which is not DTS HD or True HD. Guess I need to play around some more!!

    As I said above there is no way to bitstream lossless, if you select bitstream it will just convert the audio to lossy Dolby or DTS depending on which you select.

    Well bitstream on the XB1 will limit you lossy formats, PCM is lossless so the superior option.

    Uncompressed PCM is HD. It's sent this way so that party chat, game chat and other system sounds can be mixed together. You amp will probably just say PCM but that's the best option.

    Oh I am fully aware of that and said as much to the OP it's just the bitstream setting on the XB1 is misleading because on the PS3/PS4 and all Blu-Ray players setting Bitstream will give you the untouched audio letting your amp do the decoding but on the XB1 it instead decodes the audio to either lossy DD or DTS.
