Does this enable pass though of Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound or does it change the format to DD2.0 or stereo?

Asked by: Bw_falkirk
This should not have any effect on audio formats.

can this unit be powered off a USB type connector, if yes can you advise on the connector type size, ( 5.5*2.5mm / 5.5*2.1mm ) Thanks

Asked by: Dee83
No, this is powered by a 9V supply so the 5V USB would not be sufficient.
