Use WMP or Media Center instead on MPC and bitstreaming will work only when set to stereo.

Not true. Out of the box, WMP/WMC will use the Microsoft DTV-DVD Audio Decoder which will not bitstream HD audio regardless of speaker configuration. If you change the decoder configuration using something like DSFilterTweaker, or associate a certain filetype (.bdmv) with LAV Splitter where WMP/WMC is forced to use LAV Audio decoder, you can bitstream HD audio and you do NOT need to set the speaker configuration to 2 channel. As I type this, I have Captain America BD playing in the background in WMP with full HD audio bitstreaming. My speaker configuration is set to 7.1 on my AMD HDMI Output.

OK, I stand corrected. I just did some quick testing and also had bitstreaming work without setting stereo. I'm sure this was nessasary in the past but improved drivers probably improved this also!

Use Shark007 Codecs and retain your sanity.

It turned out to be an EDID issue. I used a EDID override that tulli creasted and it worked. Thank you all for your help.

I'm pretty sure I've always had mine set to 7.1, but not enough to say you're wrong on that.

Great! Probably a missing 8 channel LPCM descriptor. It was my first thought but your original post said you tried an EDID already.

I can also can bitstream HD In Media Center or MPC with windows set to 5.1

Edit: sorry Shark, looks like you already went and tested again
