    Xbox Series S Audio Passthrough is still broken and it doesn't work for Netflix.


    Hi,

    The audio passthrough is broken and the Netflix App doesn't use it when watching films. How many of us still have the same issue? I'm using an xbox series s with an optical cable from my tv to an av amplifier - as this allows me to see exactly what audio format is being sent.

    The audio settings for the xbox picks up that it allows for DD and DTS output.

    Please note: this is all still occurring since microsoft ran the automatic update last November (2021) which removed the Bitstream Out option.

    1. set the audio to stereo uncompressed.

    The amplifier correctly shows this as Prologic. This is good for normal use and there are no delays between the screen and the audio. the best example is when you enter your password. As I move the cursor around the keyboard and select each letter, the button click and the corresponding sound effect are perfectly aligned.

    Netflix only allows for stereo soundtracks. When I'm watching a film and then pressed the xbox button on the controller, it doesn't display 'passthrough' in the top right of the screen.

    2. set the audio to DD.

    The amplifier correctly shows as Dolby Digital.

    But, there is a noticable delay between screen actions and the sound! as I move the cursor around the keyboard when entering a password, the sound effect is always occurring after the button click by about half a second - and it's seriously annoying.

    Netflix now allows for stereo and 5.1 soundtracks. But, it never shows 'passthrough' at the top right of the screen when I press the xbox button. The amplifier always shows Dolby Digital irrespective of which soundtrack I choose.

    3. set the audio to DTS.

    The amplfier shows correctly as Dts Surround Sound.

    This has exactly the same delay as DD.

    Netflix allows for stereo and 5.1 soundtracks. as with DD, the 'passthrough' is not being used.

    but, it gets worse! The 5.1 soundtracks from Netflix are DD. The amplifier always shows as DTS, irrespective of which soundtrack I choose. This shows that the xbox is processing the audio and converting it from DD into DTS and then sending it to the tv.

    Where does that leave us.

    1. in 12 months, Netflix have not fixed their App to use the passthrough properly.

    2. Microsoft have this issue at such a low priority that it will never get fixed.

    3. I can't report this as an issue, as there is no online support process that allows me to do so - except for a useless feedback page. @Microsoft - how do I report this?

    4. This is NOT an issue with my tv or my amplifier as there are no firmware changes that can cause the problme. it's ALL on the xbox.

    Apologies for the long post.

    DB.

    :)

    My headphones are not recognized by my PC when plugged in the controller

    the controller has to be hardwired for audio to work as the xbox controller bluetooth does not allow audio passthrough.

    For xbox one controllers and xbox series controllers

    by bluetooth if your pc has this (does not support audio passthrough so no headest support via controller).

    by wire (this supports audio passthough for headsets via controller)

    by purchasing the xbox wireless adapter for pc (this supports audio passthough for headsets via controller)

    Connecting wired headset to XBox wireless controller and hearing audio when the connecting the controller via Bluetooth

    none of the xbox controllers support audio passthrough via bluetooth, you have to use wired or use an xbox wireless adapter for that to work.
