Audio Setting for Bose Cinemate 130 Soundbar? Bitstream or 5.1 uncompressed?

What should I be setting when using this soundbar with Xbox One?

I usually use 5.1 uncompressed, by some tv stations have no audio (i have to flip back and forth to get audio on stations) and certain apps like MLB tv has no audio, just video.  But with bitstream it seems to work fine.  Just not sure what I am loosing by using bitstream (hdmi connection) over 5.1 uncompressed.

Hi BoDEAN96, 

The use of bitstream or stereo uncompressed really depends on your hardware and how exactly you have everything set up. 5.1 uncompressed is usually a better quality, and sometimes works where bitstream does not (and vise verse). Bitsteam is Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 and is compressed a bit. You may notice the sound difference by watching uncompressed bluray movie. TV stations through your cable are already compressed a bit, so you'll likely not see the difference.

Ok. Hopefully they fix in the preview update (the issue has been since June) the sound dropping with 5.1 uncompressed, so I can go back to using that full time.  Maybe work on supporting and being more compatible with Bose Soundbars too.

Hi BoDEAN96, 

If this has only been happening since the Update Preview (which is going to be buggy, that's why it's a preview), then I would suggest you post in the Preview Forums below.
