hmm ... looks like I'll wait for the hotfix .

The HDMI driver in Cat 9.12 has not changed. I'm sticking with the realtek driver.

I am anxious to get that one I am still not capable to get DTS-MA bitstream to sync with my prepro even with an EDID override. At least the EDID override is giving me access to 23 and 59hz.

So no one else is having "crackling" problems with WMP12 (and smplayer).

I have managed to make it much better by disabling sounds in my HTPC app, which I think were interfering with playback. It seems it is the mixer that throws a fit in some apps (MF?) if other sounds need to be mixed in with it. MPC-HC and PDVD are fine. Even bringing up the start menu when WMP/smplayer are running is enough to send the sound into fits and once it has started it won't stop until playback is stopped and restarted. It gets worse as you up the output bitdepth/sampling rate. Once it starts it is unlistenable to @24/96, bad but survivable @16/48! The new Realtek drivers are the same.

Awesome.

FYI, the Realtek driver + 9.12 fixes WinDVD 2010 bitstreaming with the 5xxx cards.

LOL! I'm sure they just haven't put it up yet. We'll keep checking. Thanks for the link to the page, though. That's awesome.

I finally got it here:

http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles...AGPHotfix.aspx

Which bring you to the 9.11 hotfix pages. Than press this link:

â– Catalyst 9.11 Hotfix for Windows 7 / Windows Vista 64-bit Edition

That will give you the 9.12 hotfix.

unbelivable!

Disregard this is the AGP 9.12 hotfix we don't need that!
SamuriHL's Avatar SamuriHL 03:23 PM 12-17-2009
No no no! Don't install that. It's for AGP cards. Be careful.

EDIT: You're too fast.

So let me get this straight. When im watching a movie that is 24hz or 23.976, should I set the frame rate in CCC or in Win7, screen res>advanced settings>monitor tab to 23 or 24hz? Im sending the hdmi from the 5750 to my receiver and from there to my samsung tv which has 240hz refresh which I have on a custom setting. Ive noticed when I leave it on 60hz I see skipping during bluray playback in PDVD9 but when I set it to 24hz its only a few times during the whole movie so I was wondering if the 23/24hz thing has something to do with that? Also my htpc with the 5750 has win7 64bit installed and I tried reclock but it doesnt seem to be working. The shortcut key to bring up the properties window doesnt work either.

That was my trial and error to get it working for my setup.

I update this with: Using the 2.39 Realtek driver (which indicates HDCP not supported) and WinDvd2010 does bitstream HD audio. Xonar seems to need HDCP and software players do not. renethx was correct.

Every AACS-compliant software player checks HDCP-compliance of the HDMI devices (source/display) before sending premium contents. So somehow Windows reports wrong information (via Realtek driver) and somehow Xonar uses this wrong information, I guess.

Should I uninstall Realtek before installing this hotfix?

No. It doesn't contain an HDMI driver from what I can see.

The hotfix came out before 9.12 official, but it's "9.12 hotfix". Damn they're confusing.

The hotfix does contain a HDMI driver. Do an Express Uninstall of all ATI software and a HDMI driver will be offered with the hotfix.
Andy o's Avatar Andy o 05:53 PM 12-17-2009
Anyone installed the 9.12 official (not hotfix) drivers and checked the version?

That's weird. I don't have the ATI HDMI driver installed. It never showed an HDMI driver during the hotfix install. What's the version on it?

EDIT: I just looked. SAME exact driver from 9.10. So it's not an updated HDMI driver at all.

If I uninstalled, I would guess it would reinstall it's own driver. But I'm asking as a hotfix, does it require uninstall of the Realtek Hdmi driver?

Correct, it would install the HDMI driver that is part of the hotfix package,ie the hotfix DOES contain a HDMI driver. It would probably overwrite the Realtec driver.

bleh ... hotfix didn't work. Seems my Denon 988 is still not on the list of selected happy few AVRs that ATI drivers like ... Back to my EDID override again.
