For some reason, the PCM issue was there even when I connected the HTPC directly to the TV as well.
Indeed, LAV Audio and LAV Splitter both are being invoked (I blocked Haali Splitter and ffdshow Audio on External Filters).
Should all these ticked options stay as is?
For some reason, the DTS logo light is on at the Onkyo AVR and when I click the Display button on the remote control, I see DTS 5.1 Ch.
So I have been trying all over with the External Filters of MPC-HC for a few days, to get rid of the PCM taking over with no success.
It looks like I managed to make MPC-HC stream DTS 5.1, Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS-HD-MA to the AVR, as the corresponding light turns on.
That being said, with the PCM still taking over the Pin[IN/OUT] at "AMD HDMI Output (AMD High Definition Audio Device)" and at "LAV Audio Decoder".
Turning the light on for DTS-HD-MA on the AVR took some time, as I had to tick the option "Use DTS-HD Framing for all DTS types" at the 'Audio Settings' tab of LAV.
I must admit that without LAV Audio Decoder, no DTS-HD-MA could be achieved on my AVR. Again, I am thankful for your guidance here.
As you can see on the screenshot, the filter "AMD HDMI Output" 's Pin[IN] reads 'Audio Input pin (rendered)', does 'rendered' refer to your assumption that the audio stream is being decoded, even though the proper light (DTS, Dolby Digital etc.) turns on at the AVR's end ?
i bought an denon avr-x1000 a month ago.
when i try to play dts-hd ma i get no sound.
i think the lg tv is the problem. when i connect an other tv the denon can play dts-hd without a problem.
so i think there is an handshake problem.
i played with meminfo but could not solved the problem (i think i doing something wrong)
can someone make a good edid for me please.
I did what you said but i don t get dts hd with the lg tv with my small hp monitor the denon plays perfect dts hd
I think i did something wrong with the previous edid from the avr can you please have an other look at this edid's.
sorry for my bad english.
I tested also different startups when i first start up the htpc then the denon avr and then the lg tv sometimes i get dts-hd listed but not always.
the connection is tv => denon => htpc
not all audio formats are listed with the lg tv.
when i put the denon + htpc on my hp monitor all formats are listed.and playing.
