Anyone have experience with the new Radeon 7000 series?
I purchased the Sapphire 7770, and it worked for a day or two, and then suddenly no bitstreaming or even PCM audio from TMT 5 - silence. Checked all settings, toggled back and forth, uninstalled and reinstalled Catalyst 12.2 and TMT, reseated the card, changed HDMI cables - nothing
System sounds play fine, it shows as an HDMI audio device with 7.1 support in the Sound control panel, test tones play fine, and Dolby Digital and DTS surround tracks do play from TMT. But neither DTS-MA HD or Dolby True HD bit streamed or vis PCM.
Shutdown and reinstalled my 6xxx series card, and it all works. Went back to the 7xxx series, same condition.
Assuming the card may have done bad, so I ordered a replacement from Amazon, but wondering if there are driver or TMT compatibility issues with the new card?
I actually through I found some nirvana with it, as it really was playing glitch free at 23hz, something I could not achieve with the 6xxx series consistently.
