I have Pioneer AVH-Z5190BT and collection of flac in a USB pendrive. I have also created several playlists using mediamonkey and saved them as .m3u in the USB pendrive. Also changed the path of the songs in .m3u using editor and confirmed the same works fine in PC/Laptop.

Will a USB to SPDIF (optical / coaxial) convertor, change the sound signature via its output (opt/coax)?
As an example, there is one such convertor 'Signstek'. It takes input as USB and outputs opt/coax and also RCA. Chip is PCM2704.

I bought a new Micromax LED TV (full details in the title). I am facing an issue in playing movies through USB. The TV is able to read the USB files and run it as well. However, the video size is quite small (equal to a laptop screen). I want video to run on full screen.
There is no...
