  2. Resolved a disc loading issue with the “A Walk in the Woods” Blu-ray Disc.
  3. Resolved a playback issue where certain ALAC files would produce static noise.

  8. Restored the ability to bitstream Dolby TrueHD audio tracks in MKV files when HDMI Audio is set to Bitstream. If you encounter a no audio issue when playing MKV files, we recommend setting the player’s HDMI Audio setting to Auto (Default) to force the player to output LPCM.
