Audio:
  • AAC 5.1 = pass
  • Multichannel FLAC 5.1 = pass
  • DD5.1 = pass
  • DD+ 5.1 = pass
  • DD+ 7.1 = pass
  • Dolby TrueHD 5.1 = pass
  • Dolby TrueHD 7.1 = pass
  • Dolby ATMOS = pass (don't have ATMOS AVR to be certain, but got THD 7.1)
  • DTS 5.1 = pass
  • DTS HRA 5.1 = pass
  • DTS HRA 7.1 = pass
  • DTS-HD MA 5.1 = pass
  • DTS-HD MA 7.1 = pass
  • DTS:X = pass (don't have DTS:X AVR to be certain, but got MA 7.1)
  • LPCM 5.1 = pass
  • LPCM 7.1 = pass
Video:
  • Excellent playback as detailed in my last review here
  • VC-1 29.970 (1080i) w/DTS-HD MA 5.1 = no audio, and kinda juddery video playback as noted by @wrxtasy and myself before (sample here)
  • MPEG2 4:2:2 = heavy green pixellated, audio okay. But, most media players can't play this fairly rare video type (sample here)
  • 23.976 w/DTS-HD MA = my projector confirms 23.976
  • 23.976 w/Dolby TrueHD = my projector says 24.000
The OpenELEC boot option is just terrific... talk about making it easy for all of us! Thanks WeTek.

I'll update my main review here in about a week as I'm off on a week-long work trip. But, overall grade now for WeTek Core is now a solid 'A'. At it's price-point, and the quality and support you get, you simply can't do better! Smile

Apologies, I should have first read from page 1, but it was a long way back. Big Grin I'm not the most technical guy, but if I buy the Wetek Core and I want the HD audio to work, do I need to update the unit with firmware first?

[The main reason I want this unit is for use with Kodi. I want to see the cover art and info, like on my main PC using Kodi. As far as overall speed and responsiveness goes, would you rate the Wetek core as very good? Can one do better, or is it much of a muchness with media players these days? I'm not very clued up with media players, but my friend has a 3 year old Mede8ter X250 and it's very sluggish in operation.
