I purchased my Nucleus a few weeks ago. Setup was easy since I was migrating from a Mac Mini that has both a USB and HDM I outputs. Renaming my zones was the only change I made to the setup. Everything else was just as set for the Mac Mini
USB plays great.
Unfortunately I have a problem with HDMI playback of 5.1 files. I created a multi-channel playlist consisting of files I had played successfully several times on the Mac Mini. As a test, I played it through my iPad zone, and every file played correctly. And the 5.1 files down mixed to the USB zone also appear to play fine.
This morning I sent the same playlist to HDMI. The first three files played perfectly. Purple lights and appropriate separation, Hooray!
However, files 4-12 played only an electronic “musical” buzz that followed the beat and timbre of the music. I heard this once before and attributed it to a corrupt playlist. When I paused the playback and selected a file for “play next” I got not audio. None.
Tomorrow, Nov 30, is the last day I can return this unit for replacement. I am sure this is not the way the Nucleus is supposed to play. Any ideas?
As I say, I can still inform Amazon that I want a replacement, but I must do that tomorrow at the latest,
