The Xbox One won’t support Dolby encoding through its optical port at launch, Microsoft director of product planning Albert Penello confirmed today.
“Dolby Digital is coming post launch,” Panello wrote in a post on NeoGAF today. “This was a SW scheduling issue pure and simple, and I know people are disappointed, but we will have it.
“Anyone with an HDMI receiver should be fine, as we pass the uncompressed 5.1 and 7.1 through HDMI as well as DTS. Even if you have a Dolby only HDMI receive (which I’m not sure exists) you will still get 5.1 or 7.1 sound since those receivers should accept uncompressed surround.”
The Xbox One arrives in North America and Europe tomorrow, November 22.
