If you're bitstreaming HD audio, I assume you have an audio solution (e.g. video card, onboard graphics, that can send LPCM to a receiver. So you can do a hybrid solution, where JRMC decodes, sends the audio to the receiver as LPCM (still digital), and then the receiver uses its DACs to send the audio to the amp section and speakers.
Generally speaking the Auzentech and Asus sound cards are very good, but some consider a PC to be just too electronically noisy to make it worth using it as the DAC component.
You know, at some point someone should put together a recommended list of parts, a system that will work to provide the best audio and video quality for the least amount of bucks....a lazy man's guide to a maximum performing HTPC...
I assume you're joking? Or are the stickied HTPC guides not adequate for a maximum performing HTPC?
The one last hurdle I need to overcome is to get JRMC16 to play back film material at 24 fps and video at 60 fps automatically...that is, simply follow the source frame rate. I'm sure it is in there somewhere, but I haven't had the time to look around yet.
1) Check Enable Automatic Display Settings Changing
2) Fill in all the relevant data in the fields below, i.e. which refresh rate you want for each of the fps settings.
3) Close options
4) In Standard View, right click on any column heading and add the FPS field.
5) Ensure that the fps field in your videos is populated. You can do this with Library Tools>Update library from Tags.
6) Play videos. If using a projector, you may get audio a couple of seconds before the video shows if it is detecting a change in refresh rate. The two will be in sync when the picture appears, though.
You may want to do the last bit overnight if you have hundreds/thousands of video files.
