Hello,i am using a home cinema lg bh9420p and an lg 42 lv4500 led tv.I connect my ati5450 via hdmi to the home cinema and then from there via hdmi to the tv.video is travelling fine but audio is only recognised as 2.1.I tried the various preconfigured infs,but to no avail(a couple worked but in the audio test in realtek only the front speakers worked).So having tried other staff like updating drivers ,i think the problem is the edid of the tv.Now i downloaded moninfo but i can only find,according to instructions,one edid inside, also used get edit...does that mean my computer recognizes my 2 devises as one?Sorry i am a little confused,any help would be appreciated.With the post i upload the zip with all the info from moninfo and getedid lg.zip 3k .zip file
i understand what are you saying,but i dont use a s/pdif connection,but hdmi so to take advantage of hd and uncompressed audio formats,i connected my home cinema via hdmi with tv: i used this configuration
pc-ati with hdmi to home cinema and then hdmi to tv, Also my tv doesn't have an ARC so i cant go like ati to tv to home cinema. Home cinema supports Dts-hd,dolbytruehd and flac among others . If EDID of the tv is not to blame then why do windows only see 2.1.Sorry to ask you again my friend,but i have tried everything from updating bios ,swapping drivers,powering up my devises in a specific order and so on,could you pinpoint any possible solutions(if there any) specifically.Thank you for your time and sorry for the bother.
thanks tulli, I didn't know of this detail,i guess i should have researched more before buying but this is an absolutely horrible consumer trap.I cant even find it in the manual or the site of lg.So i can't even get actual hd-audio from a hard-disk connected directly on the player i imagine,i have to firstly burn the data on a bluray disk?nightmare.i guess i'll try the optical output and see if windows successfully indentifies 5.1 at least(ati hdmi to tv optical to home cinema).
edit: so i have tried both configurations and the audio is detected as 2.1.even if the bandwidth is limited,should't i at least get lossy surround sound,even if it isn't hd?why can't windows detect the layout of the speakers?also in the manual it states that the device can via its hdmi output bitstream hd audio,could it be that my hdmi cable its to blame for the poor bandwidth or that i first send the data to an input of the device and then via the hdmi output to the tv?
THX tully for all your help,things got a Lot clearer now.Just ticked the audio formats in lav audio decoder with mpc-hc and whenever there is a multi channel audio stream,speakers seem to work fine,even if windows can't identify them.
I can't play DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD with XBMC (Windows 8.1 x64) on my PC. I think there is a EDID Override needed. My PC with an AMD HD5450 Graphics Card (lastest AMD 13.12 driver), is connected with HDMI to an Onkyo TX-NR616 receiver. The Onkyo TX-NR616 is connected to my Philips 37PFL9604 TV also with HDMI.
I attached the results from GetEDID. What more do you need for create an EDID Override?
I have found a solution. My PC is always on. If I'm going to watch a movie, I put the receiver on. Then the audio formats gives only Dolby Digital. When I restart my PC the audio formats in the list are Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD, etc. Then DTS-HD bitstream works in XBMC. When I turn on my receiver, the list audio formats is not refreshed. Is this a known issue?
Excuse me for my bad english.
