Core i7, i5 & i3 LGA1156 Processors Thread: Clarkdale Supports HD Audio Bitstreaming! - Page 123

post #3661 of 3674
OK I've installed the Intel ME driver. Where do I go now to set up bitstreaming HD audio? In the Intel Display Audio driver I found some settings for speaker configuration and size.
post #3662 of 3674
What BD player are you using? There should be a setting in PDVD 9/10 or TMT 3/5 to tell it to bitstream the audio. In TMT, in the Audio Output settings, set the Output Mode to "HDMI" and the Mixing Mode to "Original primary audio only". I forget what the exact setting is called in PDVD.

But in Windows, if you go to the audio playback devices, and edit the "Properties" of the Intel Display Audio, you can confirm that the Supported Formats tab lists "DTS-HD" and "Dolby TrueHD" among other things such as "Dolby Digital", etc. It knows this based on the EDID information sent from your receiver.

Ah ha now it's all coming together!

My machine has a Samsung Blu-ray player. It came with PowerDVD but I need to upgrade to be able to play Blu-ray disks...haven't done that yet...wanted to research other software beforehand. But it makes sense that's where the settings would be!

Thanks for your help, gorthocar! I really appreciate your patient, knowledgable answers.

Will these new drivers (Management Engine and HD Graphics) below work with a Clarkdale (H55) based motherboard? Has anyone tried them? According to the Intel site, the Management Engine driver is specific to an 6 Series chipset and the graphics driver is specific to Intel desktop boards. I'm desperately trying to solve a HD bitstream audio problem and I'd like to try these drivers.

Management Engine:

HD Video:

Update: I pulled the trigger and tried to install both. The HD Video driver installed fine but the Management Engine driver stated my system didn't meet the minimum requirements.

I have problem with my HTPC (i3 530, Asus P7H55D-M EVO) getting audio through jack 3,5m - jack 3,5 cable on my TV Sony Bravia (KDL-46Z4500).
I connected my TV by DVI/HDMI cable and picture is fine from HTPC but no audio by jack/jack cable.

Everything is connected corectly I'm sure, also settings in system too, tried different options, using latest intel HD Graphics drivers.

My TV automatic disable analog sound probably when detect HDMI connection.
When I changing inputs and change for HTPC for a second I hear sound before picture is displayed, when picture is display immediately sound is off.

I readed is a driver bug and Intel should fix it like nvidia done.

Is it some solution for this ? maybe edit EDID or something ?

Please help.

So, I decided to reformat my HTPC yesterday. What is the status of the Intel video drivers? I am assuming that they never got the 24p issue ironed out, are there any issues with the current versions? I installed 2361 last night. Running windows update showed that an update was available for it so I installed it. This morning I realized that 2476 is available so I am guessing that is what windows update installed. Any idea which is the best one to be running right now?
post #3667 of 3674
On my SandyBridge system, I get about 23.973 fps with drivers 2476, which is pretty darn close to the ideal 23.976 most BDs are mastered to. The math shows that it should drop a frame once every 5 minutes & change when playing 23.976 material on a 23.973 display.

I sold my Clarkdale system earlier this year, so I can't comment on whether it is doing any better with the 24p issue. I suspect not, but I am curious.

now we have 2509 drivers
post #3669 of 3674
I had an issue while trying to install the 2509 drivers yesterday. I was either on the v2279 or v2361 of the drivers before. I got a BSOD during the install. Anyone else have issues when trying to install the 2509 drivers? I should've known better and just not 'upgraded' the drivers and let things be since I had no issues at all using the previous drivers. I will be reverting back to the v2361 today and hopefully be back up and running like before.

NOTE: Does anyone have a link to an older version of the driver before v2361 just in case I have issues with that?

I recently had some problems with a .net framework critical windows update. ...at least I think that is what it was. Every time I tried to run windows update it would hang on update #4 no matter how long I let it go, not sure what that is all about. TMT5 is giving me issues as well so I think I am going to have to try a restore from the server.

I have an Asrock H55m Pro. Anyone have this mobo and what version of the intel drivers are you using? On the asrock site they have VGA driver ver:2104 while on intel site there is a v2509 and v2361.
post #3672 of 3674
i3 Core 2100 in Asrock 67M output to Sony 40XBR6 TV: Went into the Intel Graphics Media Control Panel (main screen right click then to "graphics properties"). In the color area, I got a major PQ bump by checking off the xvycc box after I read my Sony owner's manual that this would be appropriate. The effect was a blockbuster with much more sharpness and clarity. Only problem is I can't seem to save it. When I change inputs (to cable box or something else) I lose it and have to enable it all over again. One other has raised the issue in an Intel Forum. Anyone found a work around? It is a pain to go in there and re-enable everytime I change TV inputs. Anyone from Intel thinking this might be a good next step driver update?

Hello,

I am having an issue getting Dolby TrueHD soundtracks to bitstream. My setup has no problems with DTS-HD audio but anything that uses TrueHD is converted by my AVR to Dolby Digital EX (at best). I believe that I have the option for Dolby TrueHD set to "Dolby TrueHD" so I do not think the AVR is making the conversion.

I think I have everything configured properly since I get DTS-HD to work but I am looking for help on the TrueHD audio.

I think the relevant information for setup includes:
Intel DH57JG with Core i3
DVDO Edge
Onkyo TX-NR905
Playback with TMT5
All drivers updated via Intel automatic update utility

Thanks,
T.Wells

I have a Core i5 on a Gigabyte H55M motherboard connecting to a Onkyo TX-SR875 and I'm also using TMT5 and I don't have any problems playing DTS-HD or TrueHD
