Sorry, I'm still a bit confused on the 44.1 issue. With a 58xx series I should be able to enable 44.1k and have it work over HDMI without jumping through any hoops... or does something else need to be done?

Of course... No problem whatsoever using foobar2000 and WASAPI which makes the receiver change the sampling rate accordingly to the material being played.

Haven't had a single problem playing back 44.1, 48, 96, 192kHz in 2.0 and 5.1 configurations on my 4670.

Cool, thanks I'm new to this so I'll search for those!

the official website only posted PowerDVD 9 Ultra build 2115...

Im also using foobar and wasapi. Have you sometimes noticed a problem when exiting foobar while playing music that you get no audio in other apps? Sometimes I have to start foobar again. Then stop, and click file exit. Then it works in other apps.

I presume then that that mobo supporting the i5/13 must have a HDMI connection?can you therefore run a pc sound card for stereo playback?

Yes, every H55/57 mb will have an HDMI connector.

Every PC sound card supports stereo playback, irrespective of the fact that H55/57 mb has a HDMI connector. What's exactly your question?

That, on occasions I would like to play bog standard 2 channel CD quality stereo.

I'm sure the H55/57 are capable of doing this without a separate sound card being added on; if you're wondering if the sound card can be set up to output through the HDMI, I'm not sure, probably not, but I have no idea.

In analog? Every HDMI solution (except for some older stereo only HDMI such as Radeon HD 3xxx, which supports only stereo 16bit/48kHz) supports 2-8 channel 16bit/44.1kHz in digital.

I'm running Win7 RC 7100 with the latest ATI drivers from 10/13/09.

Has anyone else experienced video decoding issues within Media Center with the ATI 5870? It's hard to explain, but what I'm experiencing is a random blockiness or blurriness as if looking through the warped glass of a bathroom window. It will always correct itself after a few seconds. I believe I've noticed a pattern that it won't correct itself until the scene changes. Sometimes the color will be all screwed up (only in the section where it's messing up) and be all green or all blue, etc.

So far this has been tested to occur on MPEG2 and H.264. It's random during video play, but if I click the Media Center button and again to go back to the video, this issue will occur almost every time.

I've played the same videos in MPC-HC and I'm not having the decoding issue.

I may also be having an issue with DX10. I cannot play Crysis in DX10 in fullscreen mode. My HDTV will say I'm using an unsupported video mode. But if I change Crysis to run in DX9 I can play in fullscreen mode no problem. Crysis is the only DX10 game I have so I can't test if it's all DX10 or just Crysis.

I had some graphic problems at first with my 5870 as well. But it could just be on the desktop even. Blinking white dots. Setting the pixel format to ycbcr 4:2:2 instead of 4:4:4 solved my problem

Maybe it can help you aswell?

Im using windows 7 x64 RTM not RC. And I have now upgraded to the 9.11 beta (the opencl driver). Havent testet 4:4:4 again though.

Crysis is the last game you should try to get fullscreen on a hdtv. It wont go full screen or end up 1080i or 24p. You can select that resolution in windows then scale it to fullscreen. Then change back to 60Hz. When the game launches it will then be fullscreen. But still it wont be 60Hz... 24 frames sucks for games.

Thanks for the driver info. I'll check that out.

On my ATI 4870 I could run Crysis DX10 at 1080p full screen. My TV would say the source was either 1080p24 or 1080i or p 30 - can't remember. The game would stay 30 FPS on average. What's more strange is if I run Crysis in DX9 fullscreen it will work with my 5870. This makes me think it is more of a driver issue than a TV issue. In addition, this is happening at the intro screens and I'm not even in game where my FPS would be low.
post #826 of 7498
It is definitely a driver issue. I just installed the beta 9.11 drivers and I can now run Crysis DX10 in fullscreen mode. My TV reports it as 1080p 24. There are definitely still driver issues, though, because the FPS average is almost the same as my 4870 at 38FPS in the GPU test. But it's max FPS is 20 FPS higher in the 60s instead of 40s.

My video decoding is also better, in a way. I no longer seem to get the random decoding issues while watching, but if I overlay the video with the MC menu the decoding issue is worse, sometimes even going black for a few seconds before correcting.

I'm sure ATI will quickly resolve these issues with the Win7 RTM soon.
post #827 of 7498
Out of curiosity, which drivers are people using? I installed the default driver package that ATI provides on its website for my Asus 5770, but under the audio properties I don't see TrueHD or DTS-HD, only MWV, dolby, and DTS.

i use the ATI driver they posted... i think dated October 13...

hmmmm make sure your receiver and the graphic card are at sync. The ATI HDMI will simply read the capability of your receiver and list it on that control panel.

did you go thru the "configure" procedure ?
post #829 of 7498
Hey Trailergod,
I've tried hooking it up straight to my tv and to my receiver, a pioneer 1018. I know it's not the receiver as I also have it hooked up to a blu-ray player that can play the highdef formats no problem. What I am having difficulty doing is installing the newest audio driver again (I decided to try the realtek ones but that made no difference). I can install the previous version, but when I try to update it to the current one it just gives me a log file that says it failed.

And yes I went through the configure process, I set it to 7.1 speakers and clicked all the boxes, but to no avail.

ok, try this...

uninstall everything ATI/video drivers, then restart....

then install this.. http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles...icsdriver.aspx

make sure you are admin when you install and select all, including ATI HDMI drivers.

now when in Windows 7 sound control panel, you will only see the DTS-HD and TrueHD listed if you connect your ATI 5770 directly to the Pioneer via HDMI.

Installed the HIS HD 5770 last night and Holy crap its big. But it fits and is not noisy. Im glad its the only card going in the machine (antec fusion case). There is an open PCI slot but I'm not sure you could use it. I still have Vista64 and am waiting for Win7 release this week.

Question? The original ATI software that came with my 4670 let me do some horizontal and vertical scaling of the image I can't find it in the new software. It had a couple of sliders you could move. I had the old setup perfectly adjusted in software and on the TV's overscan for that input, but now have a small black border all around.
post #832 of 7498
Tried that around a dozen times last night trailer god. I uninstalled everything, then ran driver cleaner and then ran crap cleaner. If I tried to install the latest driver, the audio driver would never install. But if I installed the previous, the audio driver would install (.53, not the newest one which is .55). For some reason my computer refuses to allow it to update this one file. Oh, and I'm running Vista.

Yes and you should be able to get 88.2 something we can't get from the Asus Slim.

I never notice that issue from Foobar. I will pay more attention to this in the next few days.

Never happened to me, been using Foobar for a few months now.

please note these drivers are not yet certified by MS...

did you have UAC completely off?... and when windows pop ups a driver warning... click on yes ?

i'm using Windows 7 Ult 64...

Yea, I don't think that option exists anymore. I have the same issue with my 5870. (And you really got that thing to fit in the fusion case?? Impressive! I didn't think it'd fit. My 4850 was a tight squeeze in mine. And yes, I'm going to attempt to drop the Xonar in there, as well. ) Anyway, that option would be nice to have back but it's been gone for a while now I think.
post #838 of 7498
That must be the issue, them not being signed, because when I go into the event viewer it shows that it's failing the auditing process. How did you get around this?
post #839 of 7498
It popped up a dialog asking if I really trust ATI when I installed them. I said HELL NO! Oh, wait, no, I allowed it.
post #840 of 7498
I definitely disabled UAC a long time ago.
