Hi, I have a problem with my Xonar HDAV 1.3 and bitstreaming. Maybe someone here can help, I read about similar problems earlier in this thread but found no solutions that worked.
While PCM output has always worked fine, I am now trying to get HDMI bitsreaming on Vista. However, when I switch TMT to "HDMI
" output and I am playing any kind of track except for LPCM, there is a)
no sound at all and b)
a strong image stuttering/freezing effect (main feature finally freezing completely).
The receiver display still reads Multichannel PCM
, while TMT information box reports "passthrough
" as it should be. I tested that with TrueHD, DTS HD MA, and even normal DTS. Only LPCM tracks play like normal.
Drivers and TMT are the latest beta drivers for Vista 32-bit SP1 (188.8.131.527
respectively). I did what I consider a clean re-install (removed previous TMT and driver first in that order and rebooting after each step). My HDMI Cables are all 1.3a compliant and the receiver (Marantz SR7002
) should be able to decode the streams. My mainboard is Asus P5B-Deluxe Wifi
, and graphics card is an nVidia GeForce 7900 GTX
. I have a projector connected an its native 720p resolution is set when playing movies.
I tested with and without Splendid installed; did not make a difference. It also did not (and obviously should not for bitstreaming) make any difference what speakers/sampling rate I selected in the HDAV control panel. I was also looking for a bitstreaming
setting in HDAV control panel that I have to select, but there was none. I assume that's ok?
Does anyone else experience this problem?
