I've always gotten whatever I configured Vista to put out (currently at 24/96). Make sure in Windows/Sound you have the default (on the last tab) as high as your sound card supports.
My Onkyo 905 reports 96 (over HDMI PCM, but it did the same when I was using analog), although not sure I can see the bit rate.
I'm working on XP.
My soundcard automatically sets the correct kHz when getting data from applications. Even when i manually set it to 96 kHz it will get set back to 48 kHz when PDVD starts.
I don't really think that your PowerDVD does give out true 24/96. U have just forced your soundcard to resample everything which is played back to 24/96, no matter what the applications really send. But that is no real 24/96 support of PowerDVD.
When playing back the 24/96 DTS-HD Track of the Queen Bluray it also only says 48 kHz in the own information window of PowerDVD.
So i guess they are even downmixing it on a very early level, in the PowerDVD codec.
Which titles do u use for DTS-HD MA 96 kHz check?
PS No reciever on earth can ever check which rate a analog signal has.
