Hi,

Goin thru postings here, I bought WinDVD 2.6 from a link provided by somebody in this forum. I uninstalled my old one and installed this version. However, the SPDIF out was grayed out so there was no way to get DD/DTS sound which can be done by my older version. Is there a way to fix this? The seller will not entertain any refunds, so I had to reinstall my older version.

Manny

Hi Manny:

___One word, Blight’s excellent SW DVD player utility called DVD Genie 4.0 . Enable S/PDIF with the WinDVD tab --> more options --> Audio Mode --> SP/DIF. That is if your sound card and its drivers are AC-3 pass-thru/DTS capable.

___Good Luck

Hey Manny,

Was that the link I posted to Buystarnow.com(or something similar) for $16.99? It was the 2 channel version, but with DD and DTS "pass thru", right?

I was going to get that disc, but with the new WDVD3 around the corner.......

I hope you get it working.

And if you don't, here I am for bashing. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
