I know this board supports passthrough of DD and DTS but it doesnt work and i have the latest version of PowerDVD. When i set PowerDVD to HDMI and select passthrough i get no audio off my DVD or BlueRay movies. I have the latest R1.90 drivers and 8.4 catalyst. I went as far as removing all drivers from my system and using the ones the board came with but of no help. I even decided to use a dvi to hdmi cable and use the spidif option. when i do the sound test in windows control panel and select dts or dd i get sound from my reciever on all channels but not true digital. My reciever says dd/movies(maybe two channels converted to multi). I have the latest Pioneer Elite Reciever. Has anyone experienced this issue?
I have had nothing but trouble over the years with any kind of standby or sleep mode so I don't ever activate them. Are all of your windows updates current? If a windows update or driver update doesn't fix it I would just turn it off. Maybe someone else can be of help
I see you have a extra card installed maybe it is causing the problem did it ever work before the TV card, I would take the system down to the min (main board and 1 stick of ram) and go from there if it was me.
I am having a problem. After the PC returns from standby, Windows reports it can not (re-)start the onboard network card. Does anyone else have this problem?

Yes, exactly the same. And i do like to use stand by function. After waking up network card doesn't work anymore and the only thing that solves it is a reboot. I was hoping someone else had the same problem and solved it .

Do you have other computers on your network that go to sleep and wake up and have working LANs? (The reason I ask is because I remember faintly, that I used to have a similar issue, and it turned out to be a not so good router and it's DHCP)
My computer retailer just changed over my Gigabyte MA69 mobo for the MA78 & now I don't get sound over HDMI, which I did get with the MA69. They did the replacement installation in the HTPC case.
Anyone can suggest a solution?
I am running Windows Vista 32bit

I have no other cards installed.

Under power options in control panel I have everything set to never I believe(I am at work), never standby, never sleep, never turn HD off you get the idea Some of these might change in the future but if it working I don't change anything until I am ready to have to fix something.
I will be playing with a lot of setting on this and have 2 HD that I can boot from just in case I hose it up so bad I can figure it out. I need to use smaller HD for this, one is 500 and the other is 1 TB not the most handy size to play around with but it was what I had bought so use what you have
Also I used basic keyboard and mouse non usb until last night I just dumb it down so I don't have to mess with setting USB active in bios.
Well it seems after about a month of owning the 780G I finally have it working as I want.
XP SP2 with PowerDVD8[HD-DVD playback added] and Zoomplayer[VMR9 Renderless Exclusive to fix tearing] all at 23.976Hz with Reclock running in the background for everything to sync audio up and pass it onto DTS Connect.
PAL 25.000FPS DVD/23.976 MKV/HD-DVD all running smooth it seems.
well after about 6installs I got vista working with AHCI turned on.
vista 32 bit I never got to work with AHCI, I had to have it in IDE mode.
I had a vista 64 bit dvd with SP! preinstalled. that installed prefectly the first time with AHCI on. the install did seem to hang for a while at certian points but right now it's running pretty smooth.
the F3 bios made a huge difference in my NB temps as has been reported by others.
and my avermedia h788 hybrid tuner is working with QAM.
ok guys. I need some help. I finished building my HTPC using this motherboard, but I can't get the system to even boot into BIOS. the fans start and I can hear the hard drive engage, but nothing else happens. the CPU fan works, so it's getting power via the motherboard. does this mean that the motherboard is working? help!
