OK,

its my understanding that there are some issues with the ATI radeon ve and passing DD (or DTS) w/o downmixing to my Sound blaster live 5.1 for spdif output.


Does the radeon all in wonder or 7500/8500 easily resolve this. If so I will just get one of those, I kind of just want my theater system up and running this weekend with no unsolvable issues.

Your help will be appreciated. Below is my system



Intel Celeron - Asus CUV4X motherboard

392mb ram

Win2k

Toshiba IDE DVD-ROM

Sound Blaster Live! 5.1


Since I have a very good Audio setup I just want to pass the DD and DTS signals to my receiver.

check out threads on cineplayer 4.0.


You have to buy for about $40 but, forum members have reported some success. It is one of the newest DVD playback software out, so not much is known right now.


The new ATI 5.0 player doesn't support DD/DTS passthrough. The older one did not work for me either. I'm not sure if 5.0 is an official release for existing radeon users.


I was able to get Power DVD to work with DD, but not DTS.


And WinDVD works DD & DTS. However, I am reluctant to drop any money down for a software player right now, and then have a brand new one pop up. It seems like there are a lot of releases coming out soon.
