    Hi.. I've a humax Foxsat HDR, it's on oldie but a goodie, still going strong.

    I noticed today that in the info banner, it shows Dolby+ for TRT , while normally it just shows Dolby on other HD channels.

    What's the + ??

    Dolby Digital Plus is a newer version of Dolby Digital (but is around a good while now) that offers additional features such as 7.1 and Atmos sound and also promises better quality at equivalent bit rates.

    I'd imagine a news station though is possibly using it as a more efficient codec so they can lower the bit rate.

    I'm surprised that this old stb can decode it.
