New Intel Drivers - Anyone having issues?

post #1 of 75
Thread Starter 
There have been a few reports lately of the new Intel iGPU drivers breaking MKV playback and/or bitstreaming.

I have not been able to recreate this issue.

Has anyone encountered this issue? Or was I just imagining things?
post #2 of 75
I currently run 3 Intel DH57JG's with an I3-540 in each and 4 gb's of ram. I run WIndows 7 64 bit in each and use MyMovies with TMT in them. I stream blurays from a Norco case with 20 TB drives and have been using this setup for a while with no issues. Now comes me lurking in here and plunging in a new 70" Panasonic LCD with 3D and that is where my problems come in.

I find out after some minor research that none of my 3 client pc's support 3D playback. So I bought the new Intel DH67CF and coupled it with a Sandy bridge 2100T and 4 gb's of ram. This box is kicking my butt as it stutters blu ay playback over my network but now the other 3 do not have this issue.

I have updated TMT to the latest mymovies to the pre release and the newest intel drivers with no luck.

I'm curious if these drivers actually fix anything. I need to move my HDHomeRun Prime to the system with the SNB i7 with Intel HD 3000 to see if these drivers improve the 29/59 frame rate bug.

My setup is new build, originally using the Assassin guide but since I did have issues with Mkvs I went to Shark007 and did get better results. I don't have a comparison to the old drivers yet but I am having issues with BDs and BDs ripped to Mkvs (some work some don't in WMC). Also, I haven't gotten TMT5 to work without major A/V synch and screen blinking issues.

Also despite the things I've tried to force bitstream, I never see anything but PCM source on my receiver (Marantz SR5006).... Is that normal? Should I see the format provided ir is it all basically PCM multichannel. I've got to read up more on this but I can't cycle thru the surround options and see anything but auto/stereo/multichannel on my reciever whereas on my PS3 I see DD DT etc. etc.

If there are issues with TMT5 as well I think this is definitely an Intel issue. I will be interested in others that chime in.

Are you running TMT with your Intel Integrated GPU? I am curious because my core i3-540 setups work with no issues at this time.
post #7 of 75
the only time where i had issue with TMT5 or playing any file (MKV, AVI ect.) is when i have my GTX560ti,
with intel iGPU (i5-2500k) work 100% of time
and it happen with the exact same configuration as Assassin guide or with Sharks codec

and i have the latest intel drivers, i updated it last week end and i tried all files format in 3d or 2d
my Nvidia had 280.26 not the latest

and my major issue with Nvidia gpu was audio sync in 3D movie after 10 minutes, need press pause and play and same thing after 10 minutes

never had this with intel

I too have had problems with the newer Intel video driver, in that they would not play VOB, and MKV (using LAV) without stopping WMB and WMC. I uninstalled the newer video driver and loaded the older (Feb, I think) Intel driver. That allowed me to now be able to watch VOB and MKV using LAV with no problems. But, and I don't know if they are related or not, I too can not Bitstream (like ckenso above). It only will output Multichannel PCM, no matter the LAV settings or confirming in Graph Studio. I will probably try the same thing (rolling back the Intel audio driver, if possible).

But isn't that i3-540 the first gen? My problem is with the new gen i3-2100. The drivers could be different or may act different. I presume that ckenso also has second gen based on his comment about it being a newer build.

I have 3 builds with the I3-540 and a new one with an I3-2100T and am having the problem with the new I3-2100T build. Sorry for not stating this correctly. So I have issues as well.

As for video, try the older Intel driver. That will solve that. Now we just need to find the solution to the audio (bitstreaming) part of this.

All using internal i3-2100 GPU. I'll try rolling back the driver tonight.

Assassin: Will this display driver potentially affect bit streaming as well? BTW. My build is i3-2100 on a Gigabyte Z68 mobo. You said you were not able to reproduce this issue with the latest driver on the same config? Could you try TMT5?

I just tried it again. No issues bitstreaming DTS on Avatar.

I don't have TMT5 on my main HTPC but can try later.

BTW I have the most recent Intel drivers. I am using LAV 0.33 currently as I haven't updated lately.

I had started with LAV .36 and went to .37 recently before trying Shark which did help with my Mkv playing thru WMC. It may be interesting to see if you update LAV if you will see an issue.

Just did. Still bitstreaming like a champ with 0.37.
post #19 of 75
ckensto and myself are both using the Gigabyte Z68 mobo. I wonder if something is with this...

edit: I found another guy who has this problem with the Gigabyte Z68 board here: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...7#post20627147. He only posted once, so I doubt that he will respond to my request if he ever found a solution.

hi

and i have no issue with MKV
i have a lot of MKV ripped from HD-DVD and all work 100%
but i use Shark007 codec pak with LAV
and i set all my MKV tu use lav splitter in shark config menu

ah and i have bios ver F8
post #21 of 75
snef,

Are you talking about not having problems with bitstreaming audio? Video is fine, I just can't get bitstreaming audio.
post #22 of 75
im talking about bitstreaming, every format work, dolby digital +, ect....
post #23 of 75
snef,

Darn. I mean good for you, but back to the drawing board for me. I'm using the same BIOS (F8), although I do see on Gigabyte's website there is a BIOS ver F9 available. The only other glaring difference I see, is you are using an i5 processor, whereby I am using an i3.

I'm not sure if this will tell me anything, but can you do me a favor and check the Realtek audio driver being used on your MB?

Control Panel --> Realtek HD Audio Manager
Click on the "i" box in the bottom right corner above the "OK" box
Tell me the audio driver version (mine is 6.0.1.6433) and the Audio Codec (mine is ALC889)

Also, if you go into Sound (in the Control Panel), what do you have as your default audio (mine is my TX-NR807 amp)?

I appreciate your assistance.

I tried rolling back drivers. Still only getting PCM signal on my receiver despite setting pass thru etc. I'm stumped?

That's worth trying...

I uninstalled Realtek from the Control Panel. Still only PCM (no bitstream). Frustration sets in...

Try installing MPC-HC and playing a file from there if you haven't done so already.
post #29 of 75
Still No luck bitstreaming after uninstalling Realtek or using MPC-HC. Bit streaming from the ps3 works and so does my direct tv. Could it be an HDMI issue?
post #30 of 75
I have two ASUS P8H61 board, mATX and mini-ITX. If I try to move either system to a driver later than the 3/24 one I get a BSOD during the driver install and every boot after that. Only booting into safe mode and rolling back the driver fixes it.

So, yeah, the new drivers break bitstreaming for me along with everything else
