Stan smart TV app gone wonky

Recommended Posts

Hi folks, 


My Stan smart TV app - on a Sony, android TV - appears to have upgraded. This is not all bad (they fixed a couple of extremely annoying interface issues), but it's no longer pumping out a 5.1 soundtrack - I'm only getting stereo. 


Netflix is still happily playing surround sound, so it definitely appears to be specific to Stan. 


I've done some googling and really can't find any info about the upgrade - no one seems to be talking about it, not even Stan themselves! 


Has anyone heard of this? Or having the same problem?

I'm new to Stan and can't get 5.1 to work on my Chromecast Ultra, only stereo. Netflix on the CCU outputs DD+ 5.1. The support pages on Stan's site says it should output 5.1 if that stream supports it.


I don't know if thats related, but I'm sure we both would like to get 5.1 working!


BTW have you uninstalled the App and reinstalled it? Can't do that on a CCU as there is not UI to do so.

      Been a long time fan of the Sqeezebox but it's time to move them on. With a recent upgrade to Marantz 8012 with HEOS I haven't found we've used them. Plus our kids really getting into music they find it easier to go "Hey Alexa play Goldfwap" (lol as they would say it)
      One of them was hooked to to my PeachTree via USB async which worked a treat playing 24bit 96KHz. Which I also believe works over opt/coax too.
      I also have an original SlimDevices squeezbox (hence the remote.. but it's non functional but welcome to have it too if your after a bit of Squeezebox nostalgia.

      Hi guys,
      More stuff for sale as part my equipment downsizing, due to home theatre being converted into nursery
      This time, a Popcorn Hour C200 (Network Media Tank). Unit is in excellent condition, and all original packaging is included.
      Lotsa details here:
      The C200 has a 2.5 inch 500GB Seagate 5400RPM drive in it. Great for installing the Popcorn apps and chucking a few movies on. The C200 has the famously easy to load 3.5 inch drive bay which will make you use multi terabyte hard drives like glorified floppy disks. Good times! If you are really motivated you can put a blu-ray (BD-ROM) drive in it for optical disk playback.
      Has the latest firmware on the unit with the latest jukebox/indexing software on it (NMJv2), which is roughly equivalent to what is on the newer units. It's pretty slick and does a great job of building a nice jukebox interface out of your movie and TV collection.
      Asking for $240
      Pickup is strongly preferred, and is available from Melbourne CDB or inner city (Collingwood).
      Some pics!
