I have the following issue. Using PowerDVD 11 Ultra and audio set to external device with HD audio everythings works fine with Blu-ray. But I when a insert a standard DVD, the audio switches to internal PCM decoded by PowerDVD and I have to manually set it to external device.

My graphic card is AMD Radeon HD 6570 with the latest driver.
I'm using AnyDVD HD.

Does anyone know the cause of this?

I have power dvd 9 but I assume its similar, and whenever i look to change audio output, the hd option is separate from the dd/dts bitstream options. I imagine this is because many disks have a dts hd track and another lossy track of some kind, and combining the pulldown menu would not specify which one you want. So unless you have dd/dts bitsream selected when watching blu ray, i would expect to have to manually choose dd/dts bitsream on dvds, and that it defaults to pcm when a dvd gets read.

I believe PowerDVD resets itself if you change disc formats. You have to manually configure it to bitstream HD audio after starting playback of a Blu-Ray movie. It will retain this setting unless you play a standard DVD or other video using PDVD that has a non-HD audio track. The next time you play a Blu-Ray movie you have to set it up for HD audio playback again.

I'm not sure what you mean. I don't see any changes when the bitstream is set to HD audio and I just play Blu-ray movies. But when I change to DVD, the audio setting changes to internal decoded PCM.

It's hard to believe that they can't make a player that gets this right. I e-mailed Cyberlink about it, but got their ridicolous automatic answer. The support of this company is awful.

Try the cyberlink forum. I've never noticed anything similar, but I use spdif out rather than bitstream through HDMI.

You can disable AnyDVD without unloading it to see if that eliminates your
problem. However, it's unlikely AnyDVD is causing DVD playback problems.
