On a fresh windows install with no filters, codecs etc:
I successfully installed the LAV audio filters, splitter and the LAV CUVID decoder. Everything is registered and preferred and the built in decoders are disabled. I can bitstream DTS-HD, DD, etc. I also installed madvr and selected it in the Output section.
I have a minor concern, in this guide
@ "Step Three: Confirmation" it circles the 2 decoders. When I press ctrl+j I see the image on the right. I'm guessing this is because I'm using LAV CUVID to decode the file before passing the data to the MADVR renderer, rather MADVR using it's modified internal FFMPEG decoders. The madvr preferences controller does show up in the system tray.
Can someone verify that this is correct? If I remove the LAV CUVID filter from the external filters, it does indeed say libav, h264....
Another completely unrelated question, but in media center using the default decoders, when switching to live TV with DD enabled, I very often get silent video for 3 seconds followed by a video decoder error. This is def DD streaming related as it does not happen if I enable volume normalisation. Is this an issue people are familiar with?
