Re: Any NowTV boost users stopped getting 5.1 on PS4?

Tried Now TV on my BT YouView box and 5.1 works perfectly. Same setup. 100% sure they changed something on the PS4 app now 🙂

Re: Any NowTV boost users stopped getting 5.1 on PS4?

I also have this issue. 

When I first added it in December worked perfectly. Hasn't worked since January. Have reinstalled the app on my PS4 Pro, checked all the settings and ensured that surround sound is selected. Nothing. 

It's VERY frustrating. 

When is there going to be a fix for this?

That’s around the time I changed the PS4 sound outputs from linear pcm (which used to work) to bitstream Dolby which fixed it

I am already set to Bitstream (Dolby). 

 

Surround sound works for games, Netflix and Prime. It just doesn't work with NowTV where once it did.

Any update on this?

 

I too am having the same issues. Was fine before Christmas but now it's broken and only outputs stereo.

Issue persists for me. 

 

How can we attract attention of an admin to this group? How do we shout louder?

I gave up and used the BT YouView app. It suffers from buffering more than the PS4 but at least 5.1 works.

I don't have another device connected to the TV with access. And currently refusing to be forced to buy a "stick" because they've broken it!

I have the same problem and it also doesn’t work with my chromecast so I’ll be getting rid of the boost too unless there’s a fix coming, can admin just say that they are even looking into it?
