Also, is this come with additional 1.3a cable (from video card to this card)
Last, can you let us know that it is PAP sending and receiving between your Xonar and AVR without any down sampled and up sampled process going on?
I received the DTS-HD MA update sooner than expected. That is why I posted the review so soon. When I got my hands on this card in mid July ( see the pictures I posted at http://www.myav.com.tw/forum/showthr...hreadid=345113
), Both Asus and Arcsoft had not released matured drivers for the card to run as expected. The driver versions I had were just for basic playback without the MA and True HD support. But the version scheduled to be launched on Sep10th (of course earlier here) will have the full version of TMT but still without the True HD bit streaming support.Arcsoft is working on it but I guess it is not going to make it before the dead line. BTW,Asus is way ready with the cards. It is Arcsoft causing the delay. Everybody is waiting for the full blownTMT.
Since TMT is not downsampling any more and PAP is handled by the card what is going to the reveiver is a raw non-downsampling bitstream signal so in between this process there is no any down sampling and up sampling process going on?
Accessories list comes with the card.
4 x 3.5mm-to-RCA adaptor cable (8ch)
2 x S/PDIF optical adaptors
1 x DVI-to-HDMI cable (for the video card)
1 x HDMI to HDMI cable
1 x H6 Extension Board Cable
and some inatallation CDs.
