View Full Version : 5.1 surround (not stereo) as the iTunes default for movies?

May 23, 2011, 07:06 PM
My Mac Mini HTPC is connected to my AV receiver via toslink optical cable. I can watch movies in iTunes with 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound but I have to switch the audio channel from "English (Stereo)" to "English (Surround)" at the beginning of every movie. Is there anyway to make the Surround audio channel the default one? I hate getting halfway into a movie and realizing it is not in 5.1. Thanks.

(Please don't offer suggestions about using VLC or Plex. I have tried them and prefer to stick with iTunes as media manager.)
