NPVR Freeview HD audio problem

Post by Bic Basher » Thu Jul 18, 2013 10:36 pm

Since TVCenter decided to throw a hissy fit and not show channels on the ITV/C4 multiplex on Freeview this despite upgrading it , I'm now using NPVR for those channels which work fine.

However, the HD channels have no sound, I've tried downloading all the sound codecs etc, but it's not having it. Any ideas?

Common problem that. Freeview HD uses a fairly advanced / obscure variant of AAC compression - AAC-HE - that few codecs can use.

Firstly, uninstall all of those codec packs, they do bad things to your directshow settings and are often part of the problem. Then download the LAV codecs from http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=156191 and tell NVPR to use these for everything. These are the codecs I use with Mediaportal and in my experience they work flawlessly. Alternatively, you can use the DivX ones, but they come with so much bloatware these days.

Real life gets complicated at times, so I'm not capping much at the moment.

The LAV codecs made me pull my hair out, so downloaded DivX which works fine.

Cheers magnet.
