first time poster, been watching peoples experiences with WMC and the xbox with all different opinions and results.
Finally gave it a go and all is pretty well except for playing .mp4 files with 5.1 AAC audio (i know xbox does NOT natively support 5.1 AAC). It loads and buffers the movie and plays but the quality is crook!
I am currently using Shark 007 codecs with Divx MKV 7 preview etc.
Question is, can i somehow change the settings/or codec being used that seems to be transcoding the .mp4 5.1 AAC files in WMC so they are similar to their original looks/quality but now only being in 2.0 stereo ???
I noticed in Sharkys settings there are other options for different .mp4/h.264 codecs to use, default being Windows 7 native.
Other than that pretty happy with the setup, plays MKV fine and the rest.
