Yes, a real shame, HDMI Audio V6.10.0.2067 is bugged with my Yammy DSP-Z11 A/V amplifier (get no sound-HDMI audio device in red state). I'm still using 2064 even one phantom HDMI audio device is present (which I've disabled).
Don't understand why Intel do not address this issue in their HDMI audio driver after more than one month now

Just tested.

They have finally fixed the 50+% high cpu usage. In the past I had to disable igfxpers.exe to get rid of the bug. Now the bug is fixed although igfxpers.exe still needs to be disabled if you don't want your resolutions changing by themselves.

Intel must have hired someone who knows what they are doing as with the previous release we got 24p finally after a year of useless updates and now this.

So if you're out there I suggest for next release
- Fix the timings, according to reclock they are seriously off for everything I tested (23.976/24/50/59.94/60Hz)
- Fix DD/DTS in VMC/TMT
- Fix PAL Deinterlacing

Update : I've retry these latest Intel video+HDMI audio drivers installation on my DG45FC M/B and found that unplug/repglug HDMI connector from the back of the M/B makes the HDMI audio work (HDMI driver state change from red to green and then, I'm able to configure it to 7.1 LPCM). I've watched one Blu-ray last night and sound is OK.
Not really convenient but it works...

Is this something you have to repeat frequently, or just that once? Someone on the Forum wrote a bit of software called HDMIon (if I recall correctly) which essentially turns off the video to HDMI and then restarts it, forcing a resync and generally re-reading the EDID. I'd do a search for it-- would prevent wear and tear on your plug, and you could put it in your startup folder or otherwise find a way to have it run right after you come out of standby.

I do not speak officially in any sense for
Intel Corp., Technology Manufacturing Group
but I do work there.

I had the same HDMI issue as JohnHWman on both of my DG45FC boards and solved it the same way. I have not had to disconnect/reconnect more than a couple of times and if I remember correctly they were only required after changing the drivers or after a BIOS flash. It certainly hasn't been a frequent need. I do get a pierching high frequency tone from the audio (HDMI to my Yamaha RX-V3800) whenever it resumes from sleep but it goes away as soon as windows plays any sound. This is new with the latest audio driver but I haven't figured out how to stop it other than to mute the receiver until I play something (even the VMC menu sounds are enough to stop the tone).

I summarize my H/W :
HTPC with Intel DG45FC(HDMI out) --> Yamaha DSP-Z11 A/V amplifier (HDMI in) --> HDMI out1 to Sony VPH-G90 with IFB-FULLHD HDMI 1.3 input card in Slot B.
- Z11 is set to HDMI passthrough for video and HDMI decode for Audio (16 bits 48KHz 7.1 LPCM).
- Z11 and G90 projector powered-up before HTPC

Yesterday night, I've watched another blu-ray and after HTPC boot, HDMI audio driver was still red flagged (and no vista sound through the Z11 AV amplifier). I did unplug/plug back the HDMI connector and then, HDMI driver changed to green again (Then, I must change again the 2.0 to 7.1 speaker setup as the driver forgot it !). So I would say that each time I boot, I have to cycle all this again
So, yes xuniman, I did changed the Bios (V087) and Video/HDMI drivers but this was made a while back (one week) and the issue is still there after every boot ...

Thx, archibael, I'll try this as I don't wanna damage the DG45FC HDMI plug receptacle
Found this utility there :http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...5#post14071025

All I can say is new Intel HDMI audio driver (2067) is solving the phantom device driver, yes, but add another really annoying side effect

This version of the HDMI driver does the same thing to me. Each time I reboot, I lose HDMI sound. I can fix it, until I reboot again.

I am using an older version because I want sound from my HTPC without having to bust out the mouse and keyboard.

Hey, it seem's that "HDMIon" small tool is doing the HDMI unplug/replug job fine.
The only issue is that this prog sometime leave a DOS prompt command window opened under Vista32 (I need to manually close this window).

Now, this can help me waiting for the good Intel HDMI audio driver !

I just tried to play a bd title at 24p, it stuttered so I tried another one, that one stuttered as well. Will go back to previous drivers and report here if it cured it. It was working before though.

EDIT: Drivers are fine. It was just tmt playing up, had to clean install it, again.

I did try these drivers on my Gigabyte EG45M-DS2H and although they work fine it has some issues for Arcsoft TMT. Most of the time when watching a Blu-Ray I just get a black window but the audio works. I rolled back to older video drivers and it all worked perfectly
