No DTS-Sound after OpenPLi Online Update dated 25.03.2012

Dear valued Xtrend-Customers,

one importent note for you, after performing latest OpenPLi Online-Update dated 25.03.2012

If you cannot hear any Sound when Mediaplayback is started with DTS-Audiotracks, you must perform the following guide:


Logon to Xtrend-ET with telnet or SSH-Connection:

Stop running E2-GUi Process (currently active Recordings will be stopped):

1. With Command:

init 4

2. Check out:

with command: opkg list-installed | grep mediasink

must give result:

gst-plugin-etmediasink - 0.10.0+git0+02cdde3c2ae8da95afdccd69f8676c0f98e9a4b5-r0

Contine with Step 4.

If you get the following output:

opkg list-installed | grep mediasink

gst-plugin-dvbmediasink - 0.10.0+git113+15a323f-r2

you must execute the following commands first:

opkg remove gst-plugin-dvbmediasink
opkg update && opkg install gst-plugin-etmediasink

Only execute the three commands in below, if you have previously installed any kind of DTS-Plugin:

/usr/lib/enigma 2/python/Plugins/SystemPlugins/DTS/
opkg remove *dreamdts*
init 4

After that check again with command opkg list-installed | grep mediasink
if it will display output mentioned in Step 3 only:

gst-plugin-etmediasink - 0.10.0+git0+02cdde3c2ae8da95afdccd69f8676c0f98e9a4b5-r0

If it is true, continue with step 5, otherwise re-execute the two commands again making sure that the old package gst-plugin-dvbmediasink will be removed and only the new one gst-plugin-etmediasink is installed.

5. Wipe gstreamer Caches with following command, attention make sure to execute the command “as it is” and listed in here on your currently active telnet/SSH Session:

rm -Rf /home/root/.gstreamer-0.10

6. Reboot of your Xtrend with command:


7. After E2-GUI is started, you can check the Mediaplayback with DTS.-Audio again.

It is important to have the AC3/DTS-Downmix „on“- active within the Audioselection Configuration Screen.

This solution does not work for me.
My movies with DTS sound does not work.



Sunday, March 25th 2012, 12:24pm

i've tried different trailers with DTS-5.1 and also lossless DTS-MA 5.1/7.1 - all without problems:
downmix works and also with deactivated downmix using output to my AVR.


Sunday, March 25th 2012, 12:30pm

No problems here at all.

Try with a clean re-flash with

Image from 25. 3. 2012

And do not restore anything.

init 4 && sleep 5

rm -Rf /home/root/.gstreamer-0.10

I did a clean reinstallation of the Firmware yesterday, with this patch

I just made ​​the update online.

And despite the proposed solution, my movies with DTS sound not working

So I installed the firmware without any restoration of this day
I only mounted the network for access to my movies.
There is a problem with the DTS decoding because there are movies that no sound and another yes.
Sorry for my english, i use translate google

but do not complain that DTS

is not working

when only some files does not work

while others do.

It is now a Software-based Downmix

solution so issues might occur.

Supply Cuts (Samples) of the files

where DTS sound is not working

and sample files where it is well.

And issues seems to be

present on the DTS-Profile

MA / Core

having 48 KHz and 24-Bits

Maybe your "bad" files

use such a DTS-Sound-Profile?

I still have a problem with the sound. I re-flashed last image and install last updates but on some movies the sound is damaged - seems like 8 bit sound.

Look media information on attached screenshot.

What I can to do? Is it a bug or I have done something wrong?
lexius has attached the following file:
  • problem.png (171.31 kB - 21 times downloaded - latest: Oct 6th 2014, 8:20pm)


Monday, March 26th 2012, 6:48pm

I suggest you

to supply a Sample

like demosat does

And screenshoot pop up

sound is AVC52 not DTS

Ok. I have made a sample with avidemux (linux) and it playing without a problem, but the program asked me "Index is not up to date You should use Tool->Rebuild frame. Do it now ?" After this operation all playing fine with a good sound.
And now I have a question: on old openpli image without last changes the same file was playing without any problems, is it a bug? I think it is a broblem. There are to many videos with corrupted index.


Monday, March 26th 2012, 7:11pm

So supply the file

without any modifications.
