For starters, do:
- Install MPC HomeCinema
- Install LAV Filters (LAV Splitter and LAV audio decoder)
- In MPC HomeCinema, disable internal Matroska and MPEG PS/TS/PVA source filters (then LAV Splitter will be automatically used for these containers) and add LAV Audio Decoder in External Filters. Use the default video decoder, video renderer, audio renderer.
- Play several HD audio test files
and see if TrueHD/DTS-HD MA/HRA is decoded correctly. (You will have a trouble in decoding Dolby Digital Plus = E-AC-3 7.1, that is a singular audio codec in that it is found only in Dolby demo disc, you will have to do all the procedures in my guide: place checkactivate.dll, register ASAudioHD.ax and modifiy win.ini to decode it properly [check the LAV Filters thread for further discussions on Blu-ray E-AC-3 7.1].)
First I have to say THANKS for all your time and help getting me sorted out. I have really apreciated it.
I followed your last set of instructions and downloaded LAV Splitter + LAV Audio Decoder.
I then installed and registered both of them.
I added (.mpls, .m2ts, .mkv) into the Windows Registry
Downloaded TMT3 and copied dtsdecoderdll.dll into the LAV Splitter + LAV Audio Decoder folder.
In MPC HomeCinema I followed your instructions again ...
Options > Internal Filters > Source Filters: uncheck "Matroska" and "MPEG PS/TS/PVA"
Options > External Filters: add ArcSoft Audio Decoder HD and set it to "Prefer".
I installed ReClock and changed the settings as you have done so in here http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showp...83&postcount=3
Now for the test ....
I downloaded "Channel_Test_DTS-HD_HRA_7.1.m2ts" and I had sound coming out of the speakers but the sides were not working at all. The sound from the sides were coming out of the rear speakers, in other words the rear speakers was not only producing the rear sound but it was also producing the side sounds too... anyways
I downloaded "Channel_Test_LPCM_7.1.m2ts" and the sounds were coming out of the respective speakers. ... yeeppeee!
I mounted an ISO of the movie with virtual clone and played it with TMT.
At first sound wasn't working so I changed the settings accordingly and then I had sound but the picture and sound were both jerky.
I tried mucking around with the settings again and no luck.
I closed TMT and tried with MPC HomeCinema, same thing again. I went through the settings in there and I noticed in External Filters (LAV) wasn't set to Prefer. I changed that and I had stable sound and picture but no 7.1 audio still.
Next I went and checked TMT again and it was the same as MPC ... stable sound and picture but no 7.1 audio still.
Next it was time to go into reclock and see whats going on in there.
I checked all the settings to see if they were the same as yours and they were.
I tried changing the settings around with no luck.
I installed PowerDVD (what a waste of time) uninstalled/installed reclock again (because you have to) and I mucked around with P/DVD for a little bit. I was lucky if P/DVD even played half the time so I uninstalled P/DVD, uninstalled/installed reclock again.
I did reboots every time just to make sure the changes were happening too.
So after all this I was left scratching my head lol.
I went through it all over again just to make sure and still no good.
So I started to work my way backwards again ...
I uninstalled reclock and rebooted, tried TMT again and WAHLAAAA ... IT WORKED
I spent another hour or so mucking around ... with reclock, without reclock, with reclock, without reclock but in the end it just works without reclock!
All works well 5.1 and 7.1 LPCM (BEAUTIFUL), TMT plays back perfectly ... but (and there has to be a but in there somewhere hey lol) MPC has a tiny glitch in it.
I tried 3 or 4 different versions of MPC and they are all the same. I have noticed when the chapter comes to an end and the new one begins the sound is at least 1-2 seconds ahead of the picture and after about 5 seconds or so the picture catches back up with the sound. Any idea whats going on here? It doesnt happen in TMT at all. I also noted that when this happens if I click on the "decrease speed" button once, wait about 2 seconds and then click on the "increase speed" button once and it plays ok.
I'm thinking some video setting or something ... I have no idea!
Do you have any idea on this renethx???
