Ericsson RX8200 Dolby E 5.1

Post by Ashe » Tue Mar 27, 2018 3:33 pm

Hi all,

I have an Ericsson RX8200 with most licenses enabled; however, it can only decode Dolby Digital and not Dolby E. I have the Dolby E Decoder DP572 but can't seem to get a proper connection/

Currently, we have two streams that we take on a regular basis that we have to constantly manually change audio channels 1 & 2 to MPEG audio (essentially copying channels 3 &4) because all we get is loud static from the satellite stream. The audio stream for channels 1 & 2 is Dolby E 5.1.

We have the RF feed going into the IRD from a Quintech Electronics SFM 2150 Modular L-Band RF Matrix Switching System; HDSDI output to an Evertz 7700DA7 card in an Evertz 7800FR MultiFrame which does not decode the Dolby E 5.1 and we don't currently have a card available that can.

Have any of you had this issue or have any suggestions?

Note: I have been working with the engineers at Ericsson for 2 weeks and we still don't have a solution.

Thanks for any help!

Are you sure it's E and not AC3?

Thanks for the fast reply.

Technically, the TS is Dolby E, yes. I discovered today that there is a de-embedder built into the rack to de-embed to LPCM. The IRD is receiving LPCM but the TS was verified by an Ericsson engineer as being transmitted and received as Dolby E for sure.

It still doesn’t make sense that it would be transmitting static if it is in the LPCM format. I’ve tried changing from “Stereo Pairs” to Multi Channel, Dual Channel, etc.

It’s the new CBS HD rack that was installed in CBS Afficliate Broadcast stations with ARC within the last year, if that helps.

If you can provide me a sample of the TS file then I can test it with our equipment. RX8200 > DP5792

Hi there,

I apologize I didn't see your reply.

Do you have a diagram on how you have your RX8200 and DP572 setup to your system?

Thanks!
