BUG (b3673): Preset doesn't always change audio setting

Post by peter_h »

I've created a number of presets, where 3 may be the same except that only the audio output differs - so each variant sets the output audio to either stereo, dolbyII or AC5.1.
e.g.

I've found that selecting between them doesn't always change the mixdown setting correctly. And then sometimes it does. It's as if it might be dependent on what you selected beforehand, or something...? Weird...but I haven't figure out a pattern yet.

It's more frequent when choosing an AC5.1 setting, where it usually incorrectly sets mixdown to "Dolby Pro II".

Also, a minor related irritation (or bug?) is that when I correct the Mixdown setting (usually to 6chan), the Bitrate field also blanks out, and I have to also set that again.

Here's an extract of my User_Presets.xml file:

Code: Select all
