So using the SPIDF on the MB to send a digital signal to the DAC?

If the MB SPDIF is used with a COAX or TOSLINK, where does the signal convert to PCM?
The DAC only accepts PCM and DSD.

Two of the headphones are ~50ohm's, and there is a marked difference between the Xonar and the Mojo.


LE: does the UNIX driver fix the jitter?

the send signal is PCM. there is for very limited exceptions only PCM, bitstreaming and in theory dsd when using an digital interface it turns to PCM at the audio decoder.
the uni driver may help but they can only do so much.
your board doesn't have spdif and there is no point in buy something to change this.

Someone on a Mojo thread claims the sound is slightly better on coax than on optical.

The manual claims it has one.

there is not difference between two types of digital signal that send bit identical data. i'm not wasting my time on this.

yes you could get an add on card to get spdif or you just stick to your soundcard you are already using.

The color space will be identical. Bit depths and color gamuts are independent variables.

Anybody ever experience files randomly skipping to the end at certain points?

This is a damaged file, right? I think my drive is too full and is causing problems, but wondered if anybody else had ever had that issue.

a too full drive should not cause this. but a damaged file my do.
a drive doesn't really care if it is full it may just get slow.

your screen shows MPC-BE EVR-CP OSD this video renderer doesn't support HDR output(only input) you need madVR for HDR output.
and this is an guide for MPC-HC.

BTW. the file reports 24i (which is not a spec) so 48 fields and plays at 30 FPS for what ever reason.

Yeah... it's confusing, because it has happened with a variety of files lately.

I have low sound compared to bs player. Should i change some audio settings? What about the settings in the following link? https://cyberraiden.wordpress.com/20...asic-settings/


Internal Audio Renderer and untick build in audio switcher filter.


I play the videos on my TV through HDMI. And i have the latest MadVR with the recommended settings at the 1st page. The videos i watch are 1080p WebDl or Blyray.


Maybe loudness equalization from the windows audio settings will help?

ignore this guide it doesn't explain the setting you are supposed to change.

i assume you are using stereo out from your TV ?
you can try lavfilter stereo mixing which does the down mixing in a higher volume compared to the windows mixer.
check the multiply audio volume levels in the PC like system player and in the windows mixer the player again.
if all this doesn't help ac3filter supports DRC but that's bad for audio quality. the loudness equalization should do the same/similar but system wide.

Yes i use the internal Tv speaker. So this guide is outdated? Where i find lavfilter stereo mixing?

your link is not a guide just someone that is changing some setting without any reasoning behind it in the hope it is useful to "someone".
the mixer can be found under options -> internal filter -> audio decoder -> mixing -> enable mixing.
this may not work for you if you have changed other setting by other "guides". but this is how to enable it.

this guide in this thread is outdated but still generally correct and has great explanation.

the lavfilter audio mixing is in this guide has thing topic covered.

This is mostly for people having volume issues with multichannel audio. The low volume occurs when Windows downmixes your audio, and to avoid this, you can do a downmix within MPC-HC instead. To access the mixing options of MPC-HC, go to options, internal filters, click Audio Decoder at the bottom, then go to the mixing tab.

Yes i have these settings too. Before these settings the sound was even lower. Ok maybe now its fine, but at some movies/tv-series i have to increase the volume of the TV a lot. Maybe it's normal.

Are there any up to date guides on configuring MPC-HC? The most recent guides I could find are the first post in this thread (2015), and one from 2013. I also saw mention of MPV quite a lot but I don't know if it needed similar configuring. I don't quite get all the terminology being thrown around, so I needed something more direct to copy and forget about.

Most of the settings are still the same, there is not much to be updated.
You can't just copy, the settings are specific to whatever system it's being used on.

Finally took the pill to change to Windows 10 few weeks ago.

But trying to get my PC running again smoothly with MPC-HC has been an absolute test of patience. For whatever reason, everytime I try and seek forward or backwards in a movie - bitstreaming just dies. There is no way to bring it back other than closing MPC-HC, opening back and reloading the movie from scratch. Has anyone faced the same issue where if you seek forward or backwards, bitstreaming just disables itself?

I have tried rolling back nvidia drivers, updating to the latest, none of it worked. Tried several other players like Jriver, MPC-BE, Potplayer, DSPlayer, all of them exhibit the same issue.

I am not sure why this is happening, none of my hardware changed and everything was fine and dandy with Win7.

For reference, my specs are;
Ryzen 9 3900x
Nvidia 1070Ti
16GB 3200mhz RAM
yada yada and so on, things that doesn't matter.

SVS Ultra Bookshelf + SVS Ultra Center
Prime Bookshelf Surround with Prime Elevation Heights
Dual Rythmik FV15HP
Yamaha RX-A3060 + Parasound Halo A31 + Emotiva A500
