    I know it upsamples all of the 720p stuff, it says so. I was comparing like-for-like on a 1080p movie. It doesn't seem to upsample SD movies, which is fine. I expected that. It's mostly older stuff I have that is SD, so I don't expect much out of those, even if they DID get upsampled....hehehe

    I just figured that I would mention it just in case you wanted to look into it while it was still in beta.

    I have found one limitation that both the Roku video app and the Mezzmo app seem to have. Neither seems to play the audio on videos encoded with DTS 5.1 audio.

    The Roku only supports DTS as passthrough, so if you do not have an Audio Receiver connected that supports DTS passthrough it will not play https://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdk...+Video+Support

    Yeah. I expected that from the Roku app itself. Is there any way that the Mezzmo app can be made to play them by a means other than transcoding first?

    The app is using the Roku's video player so we are limited by the supported formats, Mezzmo should transcode the file on the fly to change the audio from DTS to a supported codec.
